Hi could you recommend plants that will tolerate being planted in a hot sunny position ie drive way. I currently have riverstones along the side of our house with large pots holding succulents and yukkas. But I’d like something with colour and leafy. I think the ground soil would be poor as there’s been weedmating on the garden for close on 10 years hence my plants in pots. I do wish to get away from weedmats and stones.

Thank you

Last summer I was sold Confidor to rid my raspberries, boysenberries, etc. of an infestation of leaf hoppers. Didn’t work. I followed a spray regime during dormancy but last week I noticed the first appearance of hoppers. I have sprayed twice since then with COnfidor but this morning there are even more. Do you have any suggestions as to might work?

I purchased 2 mixed Bacopa plants last week and after the weekends storm one seems to be dying. It is in good sunlight and well watered. The other one is thriving in the same conditions. Any ideas on what may be happening here?

Thanks

We have three Absolutely Fabulous standard roses planted a few months ago in the spring and doing marvellously well. Today we came home to find the lawn-mowing people had ring-barked all three. Is there anything we can do to increase their chances of survival (other than getting rid of the lawnmowers, of course?

Our passion fruit vine was covered in fruit but it is rotting rather than ripening. Many green fruit have spot marks on them. Fruit goes from green to rotten. Why?

Occasionally I find that the branches on my Apple trees have longitudinal splitting of the bark. If left unattended, fluffy white mould will grow inside the lesson.
Could you please tell me how I can prevent the splitting from occuring.

Hi there

We have a large healthy looking camellia tree but for the past few years all the buds have fallen off. We might get one or two flowers but all the buds just drop off.

Thanks

Hi I have just moved into a property where the garden was loved once upon a time.
Some of the flower beds (even though they are extremely over grown) still have some surprises in like Strawberries and mint kale and silver beet.
Would it be best to take out what I want to rescue and start again or to try and weed by hand around them.
