Hello, i would like some advice on what plants to buy for a boundary hedge. The soil can get quite damp in winter, but not all year around. We are thinking of the lilly pilly or michelia figo or similar.
Do you have any recommendations for us?
We live in Paparoa, Northland.
Thanks

What is the best way to get nets over quite large fruit trees,i.e.plums or pears, to prevent the fruit being eaten by birds? What other successful ways are there to deter birds?

I live in Aotea, Porirua. There is a lot of clay and very little good soil but I have put in a lot of good soil to plant a row of Grisellia’s down the fence line approx.25 total. I lost approx.12 and have since replanted 2-3 months ago. Now I have about 4-5 plants with Brown spot on the leaf. Up until now they have been in very good shape (nice green colour leafs).

I have been concerned with the soil being too wet but with the extra soil I have put in and the heated dry weather I would have thought the soil would be pretty dry by now.

Can you help me please.

Hi

I have two fuschias growing in containers, the one is not doing well at all. It has now started to lose all of its leaves and flowers. They just drop off before opening. The leaves turn yellow and drop off. I thought that maybe I had over watered them. Could this be so. Can you please help me it how I can bring them back to life. 🙁

Thanks You

Kia Ora. My husband and I have a new house but our garden is just full of flax. We’d like to make room instead for our child to play and to grow other plants and vegetables but removing the flax is not going well- mainly because the roots are too tough for us to dig out. Any advice that would help us?
Thank you.

Hi
I have a young mountain pawpaw growing in a pot.
Seems very happy…trunk getting nice and thick.
All of a sudden the bottom leaves are turning yellow.
Too much water or not enough.
I have been watering daily. Is that wrong?

Thanks for you help.
Really appreciate it.

I planted a Michalina (spelling may not be correct) in our garden and we are very pleased how established it is now reaching about 4 metres. I would like to plant another along our boundry in a trough about 1.5 metres deep by about 1 metre wide. It would be ideal given potential height and width. However the trough has a concrete base as the base is the footing of a 2 metre high wall.
Would a Michalina grow ok given the depth and width of the trough.
Thanks

Hi there, I was recently astounded to discover that tomatoes are a perennial plant, and can grow for many years in their natural habitat. I gather the issue is they don’t like the cold and tend to die in winter. It got me thinking, is it possible to over winter tomatoes in NZ, with garden netting to keep the frost off, or in a greenhouse perhaps?

We have a medium sized tree which hadn’t flowered until this year with a few flowers . Do they need to be fertilised and will it effect it if we we’re to prune it. Thanks

Hello

I bought a climbing rose named Wedding Day two seasons ago. During the first season, it bore no flowers with plenty of foliage.
This year there were two bunches of small white flowers at the beginning of this season. But no further flowers. The branches are growing tall and climbing.
What should I do?

Thanks for your advice.

Regards
Hiran

How do I get my ice plant to flower? I’ve had it a few years & it’s only flowered in its first year. It looks healthy & I fertilize it.

Hi, we are landscaping and there’s a small bank which is basically clay and rock. We’re going to remove the layer of turf (and dandelions!) and put some native grasses and Marlborough rock daisies on it. I’m wondering how we can get top soil to stay there?

Thanks!
