We have been told by Daltons that we have ‘birds nest fungi’ in the soil of our large raised vege garden beds – A very unusual honeycombe like fungus that pops out black sticky seeds and spreads. We removed it from the top however noticed it has a root system that goes down a foot deep that clumps the soil together into this grey/white matter. HELP! what do we do now?

Do orchids grow a new budding stem if the original turns woody? I am considering repotting it but don’t know if it will be a waste of time.

Are your containers recyclable? Having just purchased another 12 plants today we currently have 24 x 6″ and 3 x 12″ pots.

Thanks,

I planted a griselinia hedge around 2 years ago, it is now about 90cm in height. I have now decided to extend the hedge. As the new griselinia will be a bit smaller I was wondering if I could relocate some of my existing plants so I have an alternating pattern of one larger, one smaller plant. This would give better instant screening and will provide a more consistent look overall. However I have read online you need to start root pruning a couple of months before the move. Is this only for larger plants? Could I move the size I’ve got successfully?

Hi there

I am doing a wedding in February next year and wanted to know what flowers are in season during February and when would be the best time to seed / plant.

I was thinking snap dragon, chrysanthemums , marigolds etc would be easy and bright?

Would love to know your thoughts. We are wanting to pick all the flowers for the wedding day.

Best,
Lucy

Can you tell me why my Port Wine Magnolias leaves are turning brown and falling off. I have sprayed once with a copper spray and Shield to no effect. I see no sign of borer and it is in a warm sheltered spot with good drainage.I have fertilized with Seasol. It has been in two years.
Regards Betty

Hi, I want to buy a Lemon, Lime or Mandarin tree for my sister in law but they live at the top of Mt Cook so it can get very windy.
Which would be the hardest and most likely to survive?
Thanks, Breanna

We have a hedge of griselinias that we planted about 3 years ago. Each year we are loosing a few which is a concern now as they are getting nice and big, therefore hard to replace. The leaves on a branch start Turing brown, then all of the other branches on that tree follow suit and turn brown until the tree looks dried up and dead (I am assuming they will not come back in spring by gem selves??).

They are planted on a slope, weed matted and a thin layer of mulch. The solid is a mixed bag of soil/clay. I put general fertiliser on them a few times a year and Epsom salts.

We have been told this may be due to them getting to dry in summer, and then when they start to get wet in winter, this could be causing it. Could this be right? If so, would you recommend irrigation for summer months?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
