@vec I struggle with these bit colder up here Julie but as this is established I will put it in back border my last years over wintered one in summerhouse is only small and not getting much new growth either so not sure why? Any tips, I bring it outside on sunny days and water it from base but its still not growing much!

Heat to get it going Keely, before I had the heated greenhouse, I'd bring them indoors and put them on a bright windowsill above a radiator. That normally helps. They are slow to get going this year as it's been so wet and not alot of warm days

@vec think I'm going to try over winter these in house next year they don't fare well in summerhouse it gets far too cold. The sun is in summerhouse this time of year now so I will keep the small one in there see how it goes Thanks Miss Canna Queen
