Hello, I live in New Plymouth and have a ‘wet’ but not boggy flat section, I want to plant 4 trees along the front fence, that will look great all year, let sunlight in, in winter and dappled shade in summer & not grow over 3mtrs … I may want to underplant these trees with lavender or ericas (or similar) for easy care.. do you have any suggestions of tree & matched underplanting .. thanks Lee

I had quite a few seedlings of tomatoes, eggplant, capsicum, peas, cucumbers among others and they were about 3 weeks old and I started to harden them off outside. The first sunny day i put them outside, it was quite warm and I stupidly watered them with a watering can. Now they are falling over and have developed a whitish coat on their leaves. Was it the heat, too much water or a combination off both causing the seedlings to burn? I have had to start again!

We have a townhouse in Mt Victoria, Wellington. No garden but a small backyard patio at groundlevel. Plenty of scope for pots and troughs . Last year tomatoes worked very well. Now we want to get advice on the scope we might have to expand to wider fruit and veggie options. Where can we get sound advice on this?

Hi
I joined up in Bethlehem, but live in Akld.
I have just received my first email, but it relates to the Bethlehem store.
Is there any way I can receive Akld-specific news and offers instead?

I love aquilegias (granny bonnets) and put a few new ones into the garden each year. I notice that after a while I lose my brightly coloured reds, yellows, blues etc and they all seem revert to a dull pink. Is this due to cross pollination from bees and what can I do about it? Should I dig out the plants that are reverting?

Hi, I need a plant or tree that is at least 3m high to go along the fence line around our pool for privacy. What can you recommend? I need something that will grow quickly.
Thanks

The leaves on my rhododendron have all turned brown after lack of water over dry summer and there is no sign of green growth. Can I assume it’s dead and pull it out or is there any possibility it could still be alive? What about cutting it right back to see what happens — and if so how far? Many thanks for your advice here
Regards
Christine

We have a pumpkin growing in a large pot but the pumpkin now seems to not really be growing any larger. I give it fertiliser (worm wee) and water on a regular basis. Where have I gone wrong?

I have an iceberg rose in a large patio pot on a deck which was given to me for Xmas 2 years ago. it has flowered profusely during that time, however this year the flowers are coming out mostly pink with a little white and don’t look that healthy. Do I need to repot? It is well loved and cared for.

Over the week of the Tauranga gardens art show Palmers ran a Miniture garden competition, there was imformation leading up to it with the rules etc and the dates, but since the competition has closed I am disappointed that Palmers have failed to list the 1st and 2nd place winners in each of the 3 categories and also there has been no mention of best in show.
I would have thought these would have been published in this weeks palmers newsletter as the competition was advertised it in prior to the event so it would now be nice to see the winners entries from each category.
Look forward to your reply.
Regards Marion Tauranga.

Hi there

I have a plant that grows very well (new shoots).

As quickly as the new shoots come up the older leaves lose their color and brown as soon as they get to a good length, mature size. I have adjusted the way I water them, instead from the top I water from the bottom. I also give them a good dose of worm fertilizer, every month?
