Houseplants looking sick? The plant doctor answers your questions

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi neighbours,
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions about their sickly plant babies. Houseplants might be fashionable, but they can be tricky to get right. Whether it’s the wrong light, too much or too little water, or a pesky draft, it doesn’t take much for your prize peace lily to turn yellow or an infestation of bugs to set in.

We put some of your houseplant questions to the plant doctors from Kings Plant Barn to diagnose. Find their answers here.

Major issues with the rubbish collection.

Robert from Greerton - Parkvale

She said all councils were struggling to weed out contaminants from recycling, a trend which kicked off during the Covid-19 alert levels when people began to clear out their properties.

In March, the council suspended recycling services to 25 properties after contamination was repeatedly found inside recycling bins.

“We are following in the steps of other councils by employing fulltime inspectors,” Braithwaite said.
