I have an endemic of holes in the leaves of bergenia as well as silver beet and spinach in the vege garden. These are round small holes in the bergenia and larger holes in the silverbeet and spinach. Have been told that there is another caterpillar on the munch due to the warmer months of April and May. Has anyone ideas about this new gardening problem as I have no idea how to combat it.

My three hippeastrum made lots of leaves but did not flower this year, although they have in the past two years. We were away 2 weeks in February and I left them in a tub with water in the base. Perhaps they became water logged. They still have long green leaves but I have refrained from watering them very much. What to do now?

I bought a white plant which I’m told may be “broom” from your Rototuna nursery. Once at home, I realised there is no name/planting reference/care of, etc in or on the pot. Can you please photograph and email it to me please? As I am unsure as to the best required condition/situation required for this lovely plant.
P.S. The pot has printed on it – “Enrich Nature”.
Look forward to your early reply,
Mrs Goff

Hi There
I recently lost my precious Cousin Lucy to Breast Cancer. I want to gift her Husband and children a nice outdoor plant to remember her by. I know that she loved Daphne and I thought a nice ornamental pot with a reasonably well established Daphne that could sit near the front door and provide a beautiful scent to remind them of her every time they walk past would be something they can take with them wherever they move to in future.
I am struggling to work out how to achieve this. It would need to be put together by somebody and delivered to their rural property on the north side of Taumarunui. I can’t find a garden centre near them that might be able to deliver it or that sells Daphne. Would Daphne survive in Taumarunui?
I would just come and do this myself but I am living in London.
Any helpful suggestions would be great.

Why do my bulbs keep coming up “blind”? I dead head them and tie them down each year, and have left them to dry out but for the past two years there have been no flowers.

Hi there
I have a 3 metre glass gazebo, shingle roof, It is full of 1500mm bamboo plants, I have a plant spectrum fluorescent light above them for their vitamins that is on about 10 hours. I keep them damp, but they have lost their “crispness” look.

  1. what should i fertilize them with please.

  2. do i need to warm their climate as its pretty cold at present or don’t they mind a cold climate?

  3. I have left them in their pots, 250mm diameter to help support them

thanks
roy

Hi
I have small trees in pots that have a thick green moss growing on the soil. I presume it will be using up the goodness in there…. what can I spray it with? I see sprays for moss in lawns, would that affect my young trees? thanks! Rachel

I recently purchased a Black Doris plum tree from Palmers at Bethlehem. I have it planted but now am thinking that it may need a pollinator. Is that the case? If it is, what can I use? Does it have to be another plum?

Hi was wanting to buy some trees suitable to plant in paddock for horses to take shelter. Paddock has small natural spring so is always quite wet so need something that can grow in wet area as well and something that will grow reasonably fast

Hello
We shifted out to Hamurana in February this year, and found a sewage cover in the middle of our 1/2 acre section. The previous owners made a huge round about type garden which is covered in small plants but does nothing to hide the offending cover. It fact it just draws attention to it.The garden is surrounded by cobble stones.(The cover cannot be moved unfortunately). I want to remove the roundabout garden, but would like a tree or similar to hide the offending cover. Do you have any suggestions? I guess it would have to be shallow rooted. Someone suggested an ornamental pear tree.
Thanks very much.
Sue.
