Just restarted gardening as my hobby. Hoping to turn the front garden which is in the town Centre into something special. Help may be required.

Bought myself one of these after seeing yours Dave but it’s not looking healthy and no red on it , not sure what I’ve done wrong. It’s at the front of raised border and gets afternoon sun @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

@lovemygarden65 i put mine in a moisture retentive compost, with some grit added to it, on the advice of sam @icedance marilyn, and they have done well . Ive got a couple more which havnt done so well, so maybe its a bit of the luck of the draw when buying them.

@suerichards if i remember rightly sue, i put them in a moisture retentive compost, with some grit mixed in. I think they like damp but not wet, if that makes sense. Sam @icedance advised me, and got it spot on as usual. She's a clever girl, that one. Always gives good advice.

@keely i need 8 in total to go along the edge of the decking. Not sure wether to divide the bigger ones, so they'll all be the same size 🤔 and save a few quid.
