Please can you let me know what’s happening to the Palmerston North Palmers store. I understood it was closing for a rebuild, but nothing’s been happening. The Facebook page says it closed permanently, is this correct. Thanks.

Hi There,

I keep forgetting to come down to the shop and see you so this is easier. We have a peach tree which is now three years old. It has born some fruit [although the flowers were really prolific] but we have noticed that one branch has completely died. There are lots of groups of soft gum around the base of the tree and on the bottom branches. What do we need to do please?

Thank you
Linda

I planted a Mandarin Satsuma in my garden this time last year. In Spring, it was starting to grow. Strangely a branch came off from the lower stem with different leaves. The mandarin fruits are starting to fall off and this mandarin tree hasn’t grown much compared to the lemon tree planted the same time. My questions are: 1) what are those different leaves 2) do I need to do anything to that branches? http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=6470949&l=cdb15cd117&id=706145597

Hello!

I am starting to think of christmas presents and always get stuck on what to get my dad. Anything he wants, he buys for himself. He LOVES gardening, so i thought getting him a plant could be cool.

He has heaps of ferns and palms, so i was wondering what you could suggest? Something that doesn’t grow into a ‘tree’.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I have a mandarin tree about 1m x 1m which I wish to move to a sunnier spot. When is the best time to do this and how should I prepare the new planting site? My soil is heavy yellow clay under very little topsoil.
