Hi. Any ideas on a successful way to grow a plant fence boarder in planters that are removable? Have moved into a place with a potentially lovely road frontage but the fence is falling apart. Would be great to be able to hide it from view with some clever simple small bush natives in containers to encourage more bird life and enjoy the view. Thanks Zena

Recently (maybe 4 months ago) I bought a tamarillo tree.
It is now about 2 meters, however something seems to be eating the leaves.
Is there something that I can do to prevent the leaves from being eaten?

She always has all the basic but would like some more ideas to finish her primary school year on a garden high.

I have 2 campari tomato plants which I have planted into huge containers that sit on limestone chip, will this be ok? Do I take out the little shoots that appear at the bottom of the leaf by the stem. I am a newbie gardener, so any help on how to grow these appreciated.
Pine needles from PINE NUT TREES: Is it all right to use pine needles from Pine nut trees as mulch, to place on gardens to reduce weeds, place around strawberries, etc. OR do these pine nut needles have properties that are harmful to vegetable plants, flower plants, shrubs, etc.

I like to plant an climbing plant which would produce a lot of red or pink flowers and easy to take care of. Can you give me a few recommendations and when is the most suitable time to plant.
Thanks and regards

The leaves on our potato plants are starting to wilt and turning yellow. I suspect leaf roll virus. Is there anything we can do now or is it too late and what can do we do in the future to help prevent this. The potatoes are an early variety and should have been ready for xmas.

I have purchased many seedling plants from Palmers Westgate recently and they have all died or bolted!
They apparently had very tiny root systems as well when they where transplanted! It wasn’t obvious
That these plants were doomed to fail and one wouldn’t imagine as a novice gardener that this would be
the outcome! Very disappointing from novices who don’t have time to plant from seed, and who trust
that the garden centre are selling quality products!

I am looking for advice around hedging options for privacy please.
I would like a tall hedge that is evergreen, however it needs to have a relatively small trunk as it is going on a retaining wall.
