Hi all,

We've just joined the forum after moving to a small section near Wellsford. Currently we don't have plans to have any animals until next year, but are planning to do some reveg in various parts of the property so will be asking for some advice I'm sure!

Cheers,

Wellsford is an up and coming small town.
How big is your section and what animals were you planning on having?

Just over a hectare... and at this stage some chickens and alpacas... we'll settle in first and wait until the Spring to start thinking about animals... but at this stage we want to plant lots of natives (the garden had an obscene number of CIDP, so they're in the process of being destroyed) ASAP. We will be planting 50 manukas, 20 cabbage trees, several flax, some corokia and akeake... not to mention finally transferring our many citrus to the ground to create a little orchard.

Wow, that's harsh. Surely you'd treat them as medical refugees?

What on earth is a CIPD if it's not a sufferer of Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy?

The mind boggles.

Well, there are different types of indecencies in plants.
There are those that shed their leaves and stand naked for half the year.
There are those that cross polinate and produce seeds that are not true to their type.
The list is really quite long

A deciduous one that Autumn strips of its clothes. Nothing worse than having a tree in your garden that has a bare trunk, limbs and dangling bits ! :rolleyes: :p

Try having a cheesemaker/chef/fencer in the same state. If they'd seen that, they'd not be complaining about the plants!

I go through Wellsford almost weekly and have a lot of manuka for sale at about $2 each. You can pm me if you want as I could deliver there for you

Fortunately New Zealand natives are far more decent and tend to keep their leaves intact throughout the year... With the exception of perhaps the Kowhai that loses most of it's leaves for a very short time.

I guess any tree that is not Native could be described as an indecent intruder.

Had to Google CIPD and yep definitely 'chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy '

You have some very sick plants...!!!

If your Mingimingi have lost their leaves they may have died...!!!

Or they are intentionally being 'indecent'...???

I have many of them in my bush and I also sell them from the nursery. They don't lose their leaves, or at least not here in the North. Perhaps they thin out a little, but I'm sure they're not deciduous.
