I live in Cheshire and have spent the last four years creating my garden which didn't have a single plant in it when I moved in!

Yes they do Kathy, I'm just a little concerned about what I'm going to do with it over winter as it's not frost hardy I'm told! and it's quite a big plant already and I don't have a conservatory to put it in. 😕

I wonder if it was placed right against a wall of your house and cover it with fleece or put in a shed near a window? @mojo

Great idea Kathy, thanks, I never thought about covering it with a fleece. I'll try that and keep it by the wall then if it's suffering I'll move it to the shed. @Kathy 👍

I've planted in my front garden, it gets very hot there in summer and we don't get much frost or snow being right on the coast so going to put fleece over and take a chance with !!

I've been reading up on them, will keep mine in a pot as frost would definitely kill it here also seems they can grow very large!
