Morning everyone, hope it's a relaxing Sunday for all and you get some time in your gardens. My latest acquisition (even before Monty mentioned it on GW), now to find the right spot or just a spot!

I saw it at my local GC a couple of weeks ago but as they know me well and told me to hold on as better were due so I did and this 5ft high item arrived 😁

What a beauty. I have two and neither are as big as that and I’ve had them for years! 🤔💜

Morning, I didn't realise they got so tall. I acquired one last year but there's not many berries on it yet. Didn't Monty say put in a sunny spot? I might move mine to a better position 💜 Enjoy! 😊

Morning Jacqueline, I was impressed with it for that reason but it does say they are moderately quick growing to 2.5m high in 20 years while I can wait to see that I can at least enjoy the berries each year @awomanonabike

Morning Ange, its supposed to be a moderate grower upto 2.5m in 20 years but Monty did say that as does the internetty. It's best suited to full sun or light shade (dappled) anything deeper and it becomes leggy with less berries @anges

Yes, thanks for that - I'll move it to the back garden somewhere 💜👍

Hmmm! I guess my smaller one has suffered a bit. It’s next to the drive and someone did drive over it a few years ago 🤷‍♀️

Oh that's terrible Jacqueline, they should have replaced it. I have just tickle pruned it as this is supposed to be done after flowering. Hope it's in a sunny spot and recovers fully @awomanonabike
