I have small garden fly’s hovering around my back door, I can see nothing that is attracting them, I have a small wooden deck & a concrete carport, no plants or rubbish bins. It’s becoming quite a nuisance as I have to now keep my back door closed all the time, even putting the rubbish out. Would be grateful if you could advise.

I have a 6 year old Peasgood Nunsuch apple tree which has only ever produced a couple of small apples, very little blossom, tree looks healthy and very tall, gets enough sunshine, there is also a lemon tree nearby.
I’m wondering why there are hardly any blossoms and apples. Do I nee another tree to help with pollination?

Hi,
I recently bought 2 echium plants from Whangarei Palmers and their leaves are curling and drooping during midday sun. I am concerned as was trying to grow a plant from off cuts from the South Island and never succeeded.
The spot we have them in is well drained, stony and dry, full sun.
We added sphagnum moss and compost when planting from pot.
Do they need lots of water in the initial settling period? What can we do to ensure they settle and grow well?
Thank you!
Julia

Hi there, I have some iceberg roses which are planted side by side .Most are doing well except for three. Two of the rose bushes have persistent blackspot and yellowing leaves despite religious fortnightly spraying and one despite healthy leaves and buds has the droopiest blooms which look like they have been water deprived but certainly have not been. Any advice is very welcome.!

I would like to aquire a fungicide that minimises or blocks rootrot or black spot from my seedlings, especially tomoatoes. I tried two batches last season, clean equipment, new soil, new seed, different growing areas for each batch, same result.
