Hi, I'm Robert Kleven from New Zealand. We recently moved to a town called "Te Aroha" in a house with what appears to be a heavily landscaped garden. Sadly the garden has been neglegted for an unknown period of time. We've finaly gotten the lawns streightned up a bit and most of the weeds are gone. We've noticed though that most of the plants have grown so big that they no longer fit in the picture so to say. Some even overgrow the paved gardenwalks!
We've never been serious gardeners but don't want to let this garden down as it looks like it has a lot of potential. The plan of action is as following:
- Identify as mutch plants as possible
- Find out if plants that are to big are cloneable or seedable and germinate/regrow so we can pull the big ones out and replace them by seedlings/clones, else buy and plant.
Now this garden is quite big for our habits so we've got a lot of plants to identify, i've gone through the garden and taken pictures before my battery ran out so there's about twice as mutch for me to go through but i thought i'd make a start. I've given as mutch of an description as possible but if u've got any questions I'm happy to go and have a look at the plant in question. I just think this garden deserves a second chance and keen to put a bit of work in it.
I uploaded everything to a picasa album and shared it publicly. I also added the comments in picasa. If u want to tell me anything about a plant in the album please mention the photo number so i know what plant u'r talking about. Any information or tips would be greatly appreciated. The garden has a growing shed with plenty of pots and little thingys available to do some germinating etc.

I'll list the identified plants on the topic with tumbnails and details.
