Hi, we need some advice on which type of plant to use to block the view into the neighbours yards. We want to get a hedge (or multiple small trees?) put along one side of our house, and there is 2.3m between the house and the existing fence line. We are living near Warkworth (north of Auckland) and have clay soil that has a lot of worms in it. We’re also near the bottom of a hill so the clay soil is pretty damp as we get all of the rain runoff from multiple directions. Can we get some advice as to which plants would work best in this situation and for the small space that we have? Thanks.

We have some distinct yellow patches in our lawn which don’t look like general dryness. We have an automated sprinkler on the lawn every second day, so it shouldn’t be dry. Do you think it may be grass grub or porina?

I have a lemon tree in a pot – 7/8 years old – it produces well but some of the leaves are developing quite large brown patches, mostly at the tip end of leave but some brown blotches in middle of leaves. I water and fertilize it regularly.

Currently I compost the lawn clippings from mowing the lawn but sometimes there is just too much. Is it OK and good mulch to put under and at the base of a hedge (eugenia hedge). Thanks

I’ve got an open shaded area of my house that never gets hit by direct sunlight. What would be a good attractive plant to fill the area with. I was thinking some Azaleas would do nice.

Hello,
Would you happen to still have some coffee trees for sale?
I did purchase 3 x trees a few months ago & they’re doing well, currently.
Thanks.
