Discover the shade of Summer

Expand your subtropical garden

Summer is finally here and the season is ideal for your subtropical planting. At Plant Zone Direct, you can find Northland's largest selection of Hibiscus, which will thrive in the heat and full sun and give you that touch of colour. Enjoy the exotic fragrance of Frangipanis and Gardenias. You will love the dramatic, contrasting foliage of our Heliconias, Cordylines, Birds of paradise and many more iconic subtropical plants. Add depth and volume with climbers like Bougainvilleas or tall Palms for a show-stopping subtropical garden.


Try water gardening

Incorporating a water element to your garden is a delight for the sight and much easier than you think. You may already have a pond and only require adding water plants, such as Water lilies, Lotus or marginal plants, all available at our garden centre. Or you might want to create a water garden in a watertight container, and add a fountain feature powered by our solar equipment for a soothing atmosphere and relaxing sounds. Whatever your project is, our staff will be here to advise you on the requirements and our products (water plant fertiliser, solar pumps, aquatic soil...).

Growing Giant Pumpkins

* Dig 1 metre deep holes 3-4 metres apart and blend in lots of well-rotted manure and mulch. The more the merrier! The end result should be a raised friable mound that will settle down over time. Generous amounts of a balanced fertilizer should also be applied well in advance into the mounds.

* Sow seeds or transplant out after last frosts have passed. Traditionally Labour Weekend (late October) in most areas.

* Keep well watered to encourage deep rooting and vigorous growth.

* When the plants start to run, bury the vine with only the leaf and half the leaf stalk showing, making the plant put down more roots from the base of each leaf axial anchoring the plant and helping the uptake of water and nutrients.

* When the fruit starts to set, thin to the single best fruit on each vine.

* Pumpkins can put on up to 5kg weight a day if watered well through the summer months so soak well every day. Watering is best done first thing in the morning.

* Place a thick layer of straw, shredded newspaper or cardboard under the fruit while small to help prevent rot setting in on the underside.

* The pumpkin will have reached its maximum size when the vine starts to die back down, usually after 120 days.

* Fruit colour can vary from yellow to orange and the skin is slightly rough.

* Cut the pumpkin from the vine leaving a wick at least 20cm long.
