Hi there, I have some dwarf hebes planted up my driveway and most of them have gone a very light green, bordering on yellow. When we planted them, we noticed there was a lot of white clumps in the soil which we think could be limestone from the driveway preparation, some 20 years ago. The area where there are a couple of hebes that have grown well and are still dark green, had far less of the white clumps in the soil. I had one hebe die completely within a few weeks of being planted so I just thought that was bad luck…. however I have since noticed this yellowing and no new growth of the remaining hebes (except for the couple closest to the house end of the driveway where there wasn’t as much of this limestone-looking stuff). I had put the lack of growth down to it being winter, but since there are a couple which are way bigger and darker green than the others, when they started off the same, I’m thinking it is to do with the soil.
Is there something I could spray on the plants to fix the soil so that my hebes can get better and grow normally? Or something else I could try?
Thanks for your help!

I have been given a $30.00 gift card but live in the South Island. I see you have a shopping cart icon so I presume I could purchase something on line, but can’t see the link to that.
Help please!

Hello. I have been given a young passionfruit plant in a pot, probably measuring 60cm in height. I’ve read the comprehensive info above on growing and maintaining the plant but am unsure what I should do with it until the recommended planting time in spring. At present, it’s in a conservatory and doing very well indeed. Please can you guide me as to the best conditions and location for my plant until summer? I live in the Hutt Valley and we don’t get many frosts… Thanks so much! Chris.

In different places on the section.
Leaves have fallen off or gone yellow and died.
Have used all Yates products recommended to me with very little effect.
Plants around above are all thriving well.

Thank you

I have a lemon tree in a large pot. It has had borer. I cut off the affected branches and it bushed up beautifully. Looks like the borer’s still there tho. Can it be successsfully treated? If so with what for an organic garden and is it worth transplanting to the ground. It’s around 10 years old.

Plum Tree – could be around 20 years old at a guess. It has never produced great fruit, pretty much the size of a cherry, nice flavour just really small. Anyway the problem is this year we have had no leaves – it looks dead – there is quite a bit of moss all over the branches so I’m guessing this could be why – if so is there something I need to spray on it to remove the moss or should I just give it a real good cut back.

I have small growing 5cm usnea growing all over on my maple and plum tree, which seems to be spreading fast. Is it harmful to the trees, or can I just leave it.? I live in Taupo.

We have just bought a property with a neglected garden on the Kapiti Coast and it is absolutely riddled with Oxalis, at least I think it’s Oxalis (looks like clover leaves with little yellow flowers?) Is there an answer to getting rid of this nasty weed, or do we have to remove it manually and try to find all its little bulbs in the process? Oh please tell me there’s an easier way – we have about a third acre and it’s everywhere.

Hello
Do you have any advice how I can perk up my lapageria? It consists of a few spindly vines with a few leaves on them. It does flower, Aprox 6 flowers each year. I would love to see it healthy and a mass of vines and glossy leaves.
Many thanks
