When should a plum tree be pruned? And when is it too late in the year? I think it is too late for this year as can see new growth on it. My husband feels it is not too late to prune the tree. thanks for your help, Adrianna

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.

Hi. I am having trouble deciding what to plant. I would like to plant an ornamental weeping tree in our lawn. I would like it to provide a bit of privacy out from our lounge which looks out on to a wetland area with a walkway. But I don’t want to block the view completely with a huge tree. I would like something with a bit of a wow factor. One I have been consider is the weeping pear.
Any help appreciated. Thanks

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??

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!!!

We have a Luisa Plum Tree that we bought with us when we shifted to Greerton. We have lost a lot of fruit with the high winds we have had recently. The fruit still seems to be dropping even as it is getting bigger. Is the tree lacking in something? We keep it well watered and has good drainage

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?

Hi, I planted a rhubarb last summer and everything I read said not to harvest the first years crop but to let it die back over winter to feed the root stock. I did this even though my plant was a triffid. It’s now spring and my plant us still quite large.should I cut it all back to allow for new growth or should I leave it.
Cheers TJ
