Morning Barbara, so lovely to hear from you. I’m very well thank you. I’ve been really busy and sadly my poor garden has been left to its own devices. A major intervention is needed very soon! Thank you so much for your timely enquiry…I need to put gardening back in my diary and re-engage with all you lovely people! 🥰 Hope you are keeping well? 😘 x

Great to hear from you, Angela, and to know that you’re ok. My garden has also been left to its own devices recently so you’re not alone! Once the weather warms up a tad we’ll all be raring to go, so come on spring!!! 😘😘

I’m with you 💯% Barbara! Some warmer weather is just what we need. It will be nice to get back into gardening mode and see it all start to take shape again. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s garden springing back into life 🪴🌸🌼😀 x

Morning Julie, love the markings on this one. Some of the markings are very dark and not as delicate on the other leaves.

They are great aren’t they Jackie? I bought mine towards the end of April and it has grown so quickly. I’ve been very surprised. I’m sure yours won’t take long! 😀 @ajpool60gmailcom

Thank you Enid, I’ve really been delighted with how well it has grown particularly as it’s in a planter. Quite a big planter too…not sure how long before I’ll have to source a massive new planter!! @godfreye

Love this one 😍 Have the standard variety, it's over 8ft high and 6ft wide now, not in a container anymore though 😂

Wow! That’s some size Jason! They are great plants aren’t they? I’ve got mine in a square 37cm x 37cm planter (internal measurements). How long that will keep it happy I’m not sure?! When it needs a planting in the ground I’m going to have a big problem!!! 🫣 @hebelover

They do well in containers, the root ball isn't as massive as you might expect. Mine was in a 50cm pot for a few years, got to 5ft high, only went in the ground when we moved here. You can keep them pruned as low as you like, they just bush out more, just don't remove any lower leaves that you don't want rid of..they don't regrow

Thank Julie, it certainly adds another layer of texture and contrast to this shady spot. The chairs are slowly being pushed out from this side of the table! 😂 @juliesgarden
