Very early @janric as they're meant to flower on the summer/Autumn 😩 it must like its position as they tend to like sheltered and sunny so yours must be in a good spot to have grown that much as they're usually slow growers. Flowering... I'm not sure to be honest Jan so can't help in this instance... Sorry!
Kind of you to say so Debra thank you! Truth be told it would be impossible for me to choose one as they all have distinct things that I like. I find nature and all plants fascinating and the thing I like about gardening is the peace it brings me and the happiness of seeing how things change throughout the seasons. Hope that makes sense! @debs69
They like a sheltered spot so against the fence on the left as you look up the garden would be ideal and in full sun. Bear in mind that over time this has the potential to be a massive tree but it'll take 30-40 years to get there so at least half way up the garden would also be good to prevent roots getting into your foundations! @grahamric
