This was hit so badly in winter that it was reduced to 2 leaves. Didn’t think it would recover but it’s back with a vengeance 😍🕷️🕸️ #fatsia #japanese-aralia #fatsia-japonica #fatsia-spiders-web #foliagefriday

Apologies for not replying to comments on previous posts yet. Am still fighting off a 6 week flu-type bug and have little energy most days. I do hope to be back properly very soon 💚 #fatsia #japanese-aralia #fatsia-japonica #fatsia-spiders-web

@alan1111 think you’re right! Only a year ago it was a few tiny leaves 🙈 believe it or not, the pot it’s in is huge! Holds 100l of compost 😂

Finding a pot big enough is going to hurt the pocket or you could put it in the ground it'll look after itself

@alan1111 it might have to stay stunted in a smaller pot 😜 I don’t have room for all these expanding plants 😆

@heatherdirtyhands I live in quite a mild part of England, over on the east coast. Doesn’t usually get too cold here. It’s apparently equivalent to your zone 8

@hkyfvr I must admit I never bothered about foliage until I discovered this app. Shelley & Katy made me love leaves 😂

I think I have always loved leaves. Even as a child I would collect and preserve them. I forgot about them for years then this app reawakened my love of foliage. I notice it so much more now. I love my houseplants for their great foliage too. 💚💚💚

Thanks so much Kerry. There is a garden guru on a breakfast show whose family owns a local greenhouse here. They call him Frankie Flowers. He mentioned a few garden apps and this was one of them. Luckily for me I wrote it down. 👍😊
