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.

Bread tags

Chris from Rural West Whangarei

Is anyone collecting bread tags for a fund raiser.? I have a honey jar fill, plus a heap in a cellophane bag.... The scouts collected them 12-18 months ago, prior to their Jamboree... Now I don't know what to do with the collection I have. Free to anyone that needs them. But must collect.
