Hi
I have a dwarf peach tree that seems confused. It has only lost half of it leaves and over the last week it has flowered.

Should I do anything to the tree?

Is it too late to spray copper oxy on it?
Also how much copper oxy spray does a single dwarf tree need? Eg 500ml too much?

Hi
I have a site directly beside my swimming pool and between the pool and a 2 metre corogated fence so the plants fall not the south side and only get sun in the morning. I did have white/grey convovulous but it really didn’t work. I have on the fence espaliated cocktails limes which are doing well and would like to replace the trumpet flowers under the limes with something in bulk…it is very clay like soil. I would like a grass or the like and need something that would fill the 1200cm x 70cm plot and wouldn’t grow higher than 40cm and wouldn’t be a pain by the pool. Other thing is my colour scheme is greys, green and white…i was suggested Acorus mini green, but would be keen on your thoughts…obviously it is a big space so cost also comes into it.

Thank you
Rachel

My white Daphne which is in a huge container has put on a lot of growth since flowering but has gone a bit floppy and producing yellow leaves. I do give it a lot of water (most days) and I have just given a good feed with liquid fish fertiliser as I wonder if this may be the problem?

I’m thinking of planting Yucca filamentosa ‘Bright Edge” among plants like black/green mondo grass, coprosmas, hebes, libertias and dwarf phormiums. Is this variety of yucca frost tolerant (i.e. tolerant of Rotorua frost)??

I have been looking at buying Neem granules instead of Neem oil. Would sprinkling the granules be an easier solution with same effects than having to spray the plants with the oil every couple of weeks?

I have some potatoes that have sprouted in the cupboard and are past being used for food. If I was to plant them would they flower and the potatoe that may grow mature. I realise that at this time of year maybe not a lot of potatoe but maybe some?? If you think it a waste of time that will be OK.

Three years ago we planted a sweet orange tree in a spot which gets good morning sun. It has had citrus fertiliser applied regularly but has never fruited. Could soil be lacking a trace element? Suggestions please

Hello
Last weekend I purchased a large bag of garden soil for my outside plants that came in a green and white bag. This was to plant flowers i purchased form you too in my garden.
I was wondering if you could tell me if this is appropriate to use for inside pot plants too?
We are re-potting a plant that has outgrown it’s current pot and want to know if we are on the right track.
Thanks
Kirsty

Good Morning, my family own a tea company in the UK started by my Great Great grandfather Samuel Smith in 1907. Our tea is the smoothest cuppa on the market worldwide, and after meeting my kiwi husband and moving to Tauranga 2 years ago, I feel selfish not sharing this product with every other tea drinker in NZ. So now we have made the decision to start importing the product from the UK and I wondered if I could come in and give a sample of the product to whoever deals with the buying for the stores?
Who would I need to speak to?

Kind Regards
Stephanie Bundle
