I didn't realise you had one of these. I've often thought about getting one. Do they truly smell like toffee apple?

@cyndi it is just ornamental sadly. But in autumn it’s worth it just for the smell 🤤 the colour changes are gorgeous too 🍁🍂

@jeatacake had it about a year but it struggled so much last year. Has come back strong though! And they really do smell like burned sugar, in a good way 😂

@cyndi it smells like burned sugar to me, like a toffee apple but a bit smoky. It’s quite strong too, even on my tiny tree. But they only start to smell as the leaves turn in autumn 🍂

I’m so pleased I got one Kerry, I took some cuttings from the lower part and potted them up, they’re still alive and the leaves have started to open on them too, so fingers crossed they survive 🤔🤔

@sieveheadsarah you got a great sized one! Was looking at it earlier 😛 mine was just a 9cm pot plant when I got it a year ago. It really struggled and almost died in the heatwaves last summer but think yours is a lot stronger so can cope with the harsher weather. Roll on autumn so you can smell it 😉😂

It’s pretty tall Kerry, only just got it in the car 😂😂 and it was just £35. I am a little worried about it suffering during the summer, especially after reading different websites who all seem to have different ideas about what it doesn’t like, so we’ll see what happens, I’m keeping it in the pot for now as I’m not sure exactly where I want to plant it, I must remember to keep it watered well during the hot hot summer we’re going to have 🤔🤔👍🏼 I can’t wait to smell the leaves in autumn 🍂

@gjones the heat really brought it to life! Was almost killed by the late frost and reduced to a twig so happy it recovered and flourished 😁
