I’m keen on planting ornamental potato vine in hanging baskets along with other plants. Do you generally stock these? Also I’m looking for Bleeding Heart bulbs? And a type of white fragrant phlox called ‘David’. Can I get any or all of these through Palmers? Pip Mason

Our small kowhai trees have been very troubled by the presence in HUGE numbers of the kowhai caterpillar. I understand they will not kill the tree but they certainly make it look unsightly. Is there a way to deter/ exterminate these voracious critters? This year I stopped counting at 1000 squashed caterpillars, but this method did take a concerted effort!!!

Hi, can you please advise if I should trim long shooting branches to the size if the rest of the tree. My lemon tree has a couple of long reaching young branches and the rest of the branches are all about the same smaller size, it’s like I have 2 rogue branches!

Hi there, my boyfriend has a potted Sophora molloyi dragons gold kowhai tree that has been looking sickly for the past couple of weeks. It has always been a sparse spindly kind of tree with very thin trunk and branches, and is only small being about 1 meter wide and 0.5 meter high. It was repotted into a larger pot nearly 12 months ago and seemed to be doing well until recently. The leaves have almost all turned yellow and the thin branches seem to be wilting a lot. My boyfriend thinks this started after he didn’t water it for a week, but has been watering it daily since then with no obvious benefit. Is our tree salvageable??

I have a two year old dwarf feijoa which has just produced its first fruit. Recently the leaves of one quadrant of the tree which faces east have turned yellow and are starting to fall. The rest of the tree looks very healthy. There is no visible insect infestation as far as I can tell and it does get sprayed when I treat several citrus in the same area. I have given liquid fertiliser to the root area and canopy over the past couple of weeks but cannot see any marked improvement.

Hi I need some advice please. I purchased a Tamarinda from your Plimmerton outlet on the 6 April and followed the instructions regarding planting in semi shade etc and removed some of the flowers to avoid stressing the plant. For the first 2 1/2 weeks it was looking great and then we had a cold snap. During the last 10 days it has completely collapsed and looks to be dyeing off. When I originally planted it I watered it well and then followed up with watering about 4-5 days later then again about 6 days later.
I am not sure if it is dyeing or if it it will regenerate again come spring. Can you please advise
Thanks
Melanie

I have a client asking for a miniature Aspen or Maple Tree – max height 2 mtrs.
I’m also interested in smaller varieties of Native Trees. I’d like to know more so I can make informed suggestions to clients.
Really appreciate any information you have and what you may have in stock.

Hi, a family friend passed away & I’m looking 4 info on relevant native trees to give as a tribute/gift. I know that flax is symbolic of family and the pohutakawa in the far north is the gateway to the underworld but neither quite fit. Any ideas?

The strawberries I planted last year were devoured by ants – I originally planted them in the garden, but had to move them because of the ants. I planted them in deep garden plastic bins that i usually grow my lettuces etc in and again the ants got the fruit. This time i have planted them in hanging baskets – will they survive? How much sun and water would they need?

I have a blueberry growing in a pot. Good fruiting this first year. The plant has produced several quite long, new growth stems. Do I allow these to continue growing or should I prune them, and if so when and by how much? Also when and with what should I feed it? I have heard that blueberries like pine needles around their base – is there any substance to this story?

Is dethatching just a hard rake or done by some other means?

We have lots of small toadstools which pop up each day in our reasonably new lawn. Is there some product to combat them? I have been pulling them out but not all come out with their roots intact. (Pity they aren’t mushrooms!!)

Is is necessary to ease up in the winter months on our sprinkling system watering every second day?

Many thanks for your response to the above queries

We have two large michelia figo growing close to each other. One started having a band/section of yellow leaves 4 weeks ago – about half way up. Now those leaves are dead and most of the leaves below this seem to be yellowing. The other tree has some random leaves turning yellow as well. Don’t want to lose these trees. What might be causing it, is there anything we can do?
