Hi,

I recently bought a fig tree from Palmers but as soon as I planted it in to its new home (large pot) it lost all its leaves and looks like it’s dying.

Do fig trees typically suffer when transplanted and it’s likely it will spring back to good health once it has settled? Or is it a sign of an inappropriate environment or compost and it needs urgent attention?

Thanks,
Barbara

I have a phebalium hedge running the full length on one side of my property in Upper Hutt. The height is about 2.4 meters.
It has been planted alongside a wooden fence which is about 1.6 meters high.
I would like to top this hedge and bring it down to about the top of the fence.
The hedge is at least 40 years old.
When is the best time to trim it.
Thank you

I have 3 standard roses which from day 1 have not produced a great deal of foliage or flowers
This year is the 2nd year and very few flowers with lots of black spot. I have sprayed several times for the black stock. I fertilise with rose fertiliser, alpaca poo, coffee grounds, banana skins, sheep pellets and blood and bone. Depending what I am using around the garden at the time.
I have a thick growth of thyme under covering the ground under the roses. Maybe this sucking all the nutrients from the roses. I dont really want to pull this out.
The roses are sparse with foliage and branches are dying off. Not much of the main crown left.
Do you have any suggestions.
Thank you

I’m looking to put in a lavender hedge both sides of our footpath to highlight the entrance to our house, can you recommend a suitable lavender plant that is suited to a Wellington south coast garden (the path runs east-west and gets good sun). We want a hedge about 40-50cm high when fully grown and a good flowering variety as well. Any recommendations please?

My Mandarin tree’s leaves have slowly been turning yellow for months now. The new leaves are all curled up. It seems stunted now – it doesn’t seem to be getting bigger at all. I bought it a year ago, planted it in a large pot, and have fed it Citrus Food twice this year. It is an Encore Dwarf variety. What could the problem be?

Five years ago, on the basis of its anticipated rich autumn colouring we bought a claret ash. At the time we planted it, it was changing to the deep red we expected to see every April/May. But alas this was not to be. Ever since that first year, the foliage has remained green and refused to change colour before falling. Once again this year the same thing is happening – while other claret ash in the district have turned beautifully red. Why might this be so?

My silverbeet is covered in what appears to be a white powder, which is probably some sort of mould. How can I get rid of this, and if I use seeds from these plants, is the disease likely to be passed on?
