Hi there,
I’ve managed to get some allium gigantium seeds. Do you have any tips on when to plant them and how to go about it? Can they be grown in Auckland?!
Many thanks!

I’m searching for the best variety of avocado to grow in Wellington. Do you think it’s even worth trying in Wellington and if so do you have any advice on the best option?
Thanks!

I would be grateful for some advice on pruning fig trees please. My trees are about 4 years old and this is the second year that I have been lucky enough to pick fruit, however I am unable to reach the fruit on the higher branches.

Your advice would be gratefully received.

Thank you

Kind regards

Carol

Hi there,

I have an area below a vine wall that I need filled in as a sort of border area. I just want all the same plant that can grow into a border/ ground cover. We have lomandra grass around (our background is tropical themed) but I was wanting something a bit more thicker and flaxier leaves. This spots gets full afternoon sun from about midday.

Thank you.

Any suggestions would help

I have a phebalium hedge running the full length on one side of my property in Upper Hutt. The height is about 2.4 meters.
It has been planted alongside a wooden fence which is about 1.6 meters high.
I would like to top this hedge and bring it down to about the top of the fence.
The hedge is at least 40 years old.
When is the best time to trim it.
Thank you

I have had a good crop of Summer Delight Potatoes with seed purchased from Palmers but when cut in half they have a light brown ring around the inside and a Jelly like /clear strip down the middle. Some cook up ok others will not soften and remain hard. What is the cause of this please.

Hello

I have a 2mx3m garden bed next to my garage that is all clay. In summer it is in full sun and winter only part sun. I would like to fill it with plants as you walk past it to get to there front door.

What plants would you recommend planting in that area?

Regards

I need advice on growing miniature bamboo plants:
First I need to know which miniature bamboo plants can be planted in MEDIUM sized pots – outside – as well as how to care for them.
Secondly I need to know if these plants are readily available at the Palmers outlet at Greville Road on the North Shore in Auckland.
Many thanx

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??

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

What are some good plants for under planting under established hedges? The hedges are currently hiding a poor quality fence that can’t be replaced at the moment but the gaps under the hedge are fairly large so need something that will fill the space to hide the fence.
