Hopefully this will be as fantastic as last year. Definitely an underrated plant in my eyes 👌🏼😍

I really fell in love with them last year Sue. I transferred it from a pot to the ground & it just flourished 😍😍 @susanhumphrey333

I found it easy to propagate Lexi. I took a cutting about august last year. Still small, but put on some new leaves. I am not a very careful propagator and even kept it outside (but protected) in our awful winter last year. Good luck Lexi. Hi John 👍🌱 @ukjohnny

@pelly @lovemygarden65 I've really got into skimmias this year. It's really come into its own since I planted it. I'd had it in a pot for a couple of years just in the background but now it's pride of place ❤️
