Hi, A few days ago I bought a pohutukawa in a pot (species called Maori Princess) from Palmers in Bethlehem, Tauranga. It’s going to be our inside Xmas tree and we will plant it out in the garden after Xmas. My question is, how often should I water it in its pot inside to stay healthy? Thanks so much for your help and Merry Xmas!

Hello
Do you have any advice how I can perk up my lapageria? It consists of a few spindly vines with a few leaves on them. It does flower, Aprox 6 flowers each year. I would love to see it healthy and a mass of vines and glossy leaves.
Many thanks

Can you tell me how to look after my Australian Tree Grass tree (black boy) what sort of mix should I use, when do I repot, is it alright to tease out the roots as I think it is root bound in the pot it is in. What sort of fertiliser do I use and when.

Hi

I have two fuschias growing in containers, the one is not doing well at all. It has now started to lose all of its leaves and flowers. They just drop off before opening. The leaves turn yellow and drop off. I thought that maybe I had over watered them. Could this be so. Can you please help me it how I can bring them back to life. 🙁

Thanks You

Alyson

We have a clay slope in our backyard which we want to plant out on. What plants will grow well in clay and are easy to maintain on a slope as it is not an area that is easy to get to or maintain?

Thanks

I have tried everything I can think of but the sparrows are still eating my peas to shreds. I have eventually stopped them stripping every brassica seedling but all three of my containers of sugar snaps are now just withered stems. I know it’s birds – I have watched them do it. Can you help?

Our builder’s sown the lawns with Rye grass and Clover mix about a week ago. The growth is quite patchy and we were thinking of sowing the patchy spots with a mix of Rye grass, Fescue and Brown top seeds for a better quality lawn. Would this be ok (i.e having a mix of lawn grass types)? We’d also like to add lawn fertiliser, but aren’t sure of when to do this? Is it usually done after the first mowing?

I have small growing 5cm usnea growing all over on my maple and plum tree, which seems to be spreading fast. Is it harmful to the trees, or can I just leave it.? I live in Taupo.

I have a healthy daphne bush, purchased last year and it flowered well, has grown over the summer and looking good but just wondering whether it should have a feed of anything to encourage/aid the next flowering. Wondering whether a feed of liquid seaweed would be appropriate ?
