MY Scleranthous Biflorus moss has grown well and spread to a large size.However there are large patches of dead moss appearing. Is it best to remove these or will the existing moss grow back over these patches?

I have an enormous crop of feijoas on my well-established Apollo tree, but some of the fruit is developing pale brown areas which rot very quickly. How can I deal with this?

We have a lifestyle block in Northland. One problem is possums and I can understand this on the normal fruit trees.
But our Citrus trees are being totally eaten and I can only assume it is also the possums. Leaves appear to be being nibbled down to the branch and also actual lemons are being stripped of skin and approx quarter of whole lemons eaten.
Do you think this is possums. We are trapping but can you think of any help to keep them of the citrus

How can I remove the black soot off my camellia hedge and prevent it from happening. I’ve moved into a home with mature garden and even the concrete path under the hedge is black …

Our Coprosma in the courtyard have not wintered well due to all the rain, I live in North West Auckland. They grew very bushy (so not a lot of light could get through) and tall and then lots of leaves fell off so some of the trees were nearly bare. I noticed the leaves were going yellow and had black spots. I have now trimmed them down and cut off lots of branches. Do you know what the problem with the leaves is and is there hope for these. How do we care for these trees?

1)My rose plant has just started growing leaves (perhaps a few weeks now), but now they’re already riddled with ?orange rust?…seeing orange spots on the leaves as it was before having been pruned. Does that immediately happen? I feel sorry for the young leaves being attacked by this. What could I have done or what can I do to stop this escalating?

2) My gardenia plant has always been coated with black soot both on leaves and stems. Since then it has remained small, leaves are small and yellowed (not a dark green colour) and has not flowered since then. What can I do? I’ve been trying to wash it off with water spray and even bought neem oil (but had not been very regular using it 🙂 ). Still the black soot is present. What more can I do?

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

Hi,
Can I transplant an arum lily plant from one garden to the next? If not, is this species sold commercially, or other options.
Thanks

A few weeks back I visited the Bethlehem store looking for packs of the green plastic connectors with which you can turn three or four stakes into frames. I have bought them previously but they were not on the shelf. Can you advise if they are now in stock. Thanks

Suddenly many leaves on my young passionfruit (Nellie Kelly) have large dead-white patches. No images like this can be found in any reference photo. The area feels thinner than the rest of the leaf. No pest seems in evidence.

I have a triple grafted pear tree which I’ve had for 5 years. The first year I got 1 pear off it. And last year I got 1 pear off it. I haven’t had anything else in between or since and this year there weren’t any blossoms. I regularly feed it and water it well. What do I need to do?

Until a couple days ago, in two different gardens I had really healthy passion fruit and in another a really healthy rosemary plant. Today we looked at them and they have leaves that are curling up which hasn’t happened in the past.

I live in Anglesea, not near the beach at all though. Soil isn’t sandy quite good actually.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Hello

We have Choysa Tenarta Toparies out the front of our house. They seem to have been attacked by Borer. We have pruned them well back so they are pretty much bare now.

What would you recommend to spray them with to get rid of it?? When spraying, do you spray down into the hollow branches as well and in the bark around trunk??

Look forward to your reply – thank you
