Hi team, we’re on a crosslease; our nieghbour has recently put up a pergola which, while it meets the consent requirements, is 300 mm from the shared fence and a bit under 3 metres tall. From our side its not a good look and I’m seeking advice on how to screen it off or at least soften it. Our common fence runs roughly east-west and we are on the south side of it, so its fairly shady. I’m looking at maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 metre trellis topped off with a climber that will screen for as much of the year as possible. Any ideas would be very welcome. Advice on whether I can atach the trellis directly to the existing (post and paling, good condition) fence or if I need to put new posts on our side would be very useful, too. Thanks in advance.

I bought 3 healthy looking Roger Hall camellias and planted them out. Two still look good but the third has yellow splotchy leaves – I have fertilised them with acid fertiliser and also used some Epsom Salts but it still looks the same. My husband has also sprayed them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi I have three hydrangeas in pots and have them inside. Maybe this is not a good idea but they look good where I have got them. They are not looking there best with brown leaves and leaves falling off. Maybe I have watered them too much or maybe they don’t like being inside. Help please. Jan

Hi there
I’m seeking advice in regards to indoor trees. I would like a plant that would grow between 1-2m, would do alright in a pot, and in a fairly decent amount of sunlight. I have no issues moving it outside for some sun if need be.
Thank you

I need to move a couple of roses to redo retaining wall and fences. These are old roses some dating back to 1860’s. I’ve taken cutting unsuccessfully in case we lose when moving. We have dug on 2 sides of each rose and about to do the othr sides. Are you able to give us any suggestions please.

Hi There

Just checking to see if the Palmers Gift cards can be used in the cafe as well?

If not does the cafe have its own gift cards?

Thanks

I have some clumping dwarf bamboo on the boundary between our property and that of a neighbour. There is a retaining wall, about 500mm, and the clumping dwarf bamboo is about 300mm away from the retaining wall. The neighbour claims it will spread. This has caused a major uproar to say the least.

Is he correct that my clumping dwarf bamboo will spread into his property?

Regards
Cilla

Hi there

I think my tomatoes have mosaic virus – I dont know what to do. Should I be removing all plants and getting rid of my soil? I have heard it lives in the soil for a long time.

Hi, A few days ago I bought a pohutukawa in a pot (species called Maori Princess) from Palmers in Bethlehem, Tauranga. It’s going to be our inside Xmas tree and we will plant it out in the garden after Xmas. My question is, how often should I water it in its pot inside to stay healthy? Thanks so much for your help and Merry Xmas!

I bought a Yen Ben Lemon Tree 3 years ago and it has been doing really well.
Unfortunately after all the rain we have had (it might not have anything to
do with it), the leaves at the top of the tree are curling inwards. Why would
it do that and can I rectify it. I was so proud of how it has grown and would
hate to loose it.

Good Afternoon,

Over the last 6 – 12 months my lemon tree which was a thriving bushy green tree with lots of lemons has become a very sad looking tree. A lot of the branches are brown, have stripped their greenery and there hasn’t been any new growth for a long time. The leaves are yellow

I have used Epsom salts, sheep pellets and seasol with no impact. There was a lots of avids and bugs on the tree 12 months ago and so I gave it a dose of conqueror oil.

I did dig down to the roots and they appeared wet so I pulled back the soil and let it dry out.

Next to the lemon tree is a lime tree and that is large, bushy, green and growing really well. A few branches stripped their greenery but it is growing back

What do you suggest for the lemon tree – will it ever recover? Does it need to be pruned?

Many Thanks,
James
