Hi there, I’m about to have 2 pohutukawa tree stumps ground out and I would like to plant olive trees in the same spot as one of the stumps. The olive trees are a decent size (approx. 2m tall) and I will mix in some soil/garden mix with the saw dust/chips that are left behind but I’m just wondering if this will be enough for the trees to survive/cope with? Would appreciate your advice.

Thanking you in advance,
Jody Davies

Hi, I want to buy a Lemon, Lime or Mandarin tree for my sister in law but they live at the top of Mt Cook so it can get very windy.
Which would be the hardest and most likely to survive?
Thanks, Breanna

Making 2 new gardens and wonder if hibiscus would be suitable for either. First is up a driveway. North facing with tin metal fence behind but soil is heavy clay. Has flax and agapanthus there at moment.
2nd is new built up bed in patio area but facing south. Will have good soil imported. Sheltered but has fence stopping most of the sun. Gets very hot in summer but not much direct sun on the bed itself.
Advice would be helpful. Thanks. Kae

We have camellias in pots that have done quite well for first couple of years but now seem to be losing leaves without replacing new ones. How often do they need fertilizer and which one is best?

Hi there!
Would be grateful for some advice regarding my less-than-thriving akeake, and a few other trees!

Last winter I planted a range of native trees and flaxes along a sunny west facing fence line in Lower Hutt, many of which don’t seem to be doing well, particularly the akeake which has sparse brittle leaves. I had wondered whether the soil was too dry as there is a sharp dip behind the fence line where I think some of the water (and soil!) runs down, as well as my mapou and muehlenbeckia astonii showing yellowing leaves. However, I read that akeake tends to thrive in dry, poor soils! Any clue as to what may be happening and how to remedy it? The soil looked in poor condition when we moved into the property but we dug through plenty of organic material a good 6 months before planting and did some basic sheet mulching. The same types of trees which we planted in the front yard at the same time are thriving, so I don’t think it’s anything to do with climate.

Thanks so much!

We have just moved into a new house and there is a fejoa tree that looked like it wasn’t fruiting. After raking up the leaves around the bottom of it, i noticed that it had fruited but they are very small (about 4cm). It also has some little buds on it at the moment. I would like the tree to fruit next year and was wondering if there was anything i could do etc?? It is obviously a self fertilising tree as there is only one on our property.

Hi,

I was wandering what plants you would recommend for office use.
I was looking for x1 large plant, and a few smaller ones with some color, white or blue or red…
Also – what things to consider when caring for plants in an office environment?

Kind Regards

Hello,

We’re planning on digging up our backyard and laying pebbles. Someone suggested we should kill off the grass before we dig it up (there are a lot of weeds in there too.) Is this necessary? If so, what product would we need and will the area be safe for pets after applying the product?

Thanks,
Amanda

I have a Wisteria growing and all the leaves have now fallen off. Please tell me, do I prune it and if I do, how ? I also have some Rhododendron and they have new shoots on them, but look like they need a prune. Do I prune them and how far down the stem do I go ?
