Answer: Hi Soren,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Possums will eat almost anything, especially fruits and lovely soft foliage like your Pittosporum. Possums are a protected species. The only method to limit damage to your plants at this stage is by exclusion (e.g. netting).

To improve the health and vigour of your pittosporums we recommend ‘Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser’, we hope that by providing the plant with optimal growth that it will out compete the possum.

Joyful gardening!

Kind regards

Elise
