Not sure about this and its current position. The front of the house is south facing and the garden is really small. I'd like to keep it for sun lovers. I think I'll leave it maybe until the summer and see if its worth keeping there.

@jaynehynesburton yes I've got a baby that's earmarked for the north facing back garden. It's quite an old mature plant though, it must be happy. I'm torn I dont want shade tolerant plants in that area but its huge and would seem a pity to dig it out.

@jaynehynesburton that's good to know. I'll see how I feel about it next year. It's hard to make a decision when it's just bare branches.

@jaynehynesburton I'm going to try to not do too much in the first year and just try to learn wheres sunny and not so much. I say try because I have no patience 😁
