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!

My phormium is moving to a new home in my friends garden as it has just outgrown my small front garden. I can't believe how fast it's grown in such a short space of time 😳

He's moving to my friends garden in Shropshire @flowerquest13. She has about an acre of garden so hopefully he'll settle in there and have more room to spread out! 😀 @jacq1075

Thanks Steve 😀👍 I've just been reading up on Echium it seems they like dry conditions and a south facing position so should be perfect 👌 @lamaisonbleueoleron

Mo, Your welcome you could either consider the #echiumpininana will take 2 to 3 years to bloom, and height 2 3 metres then will die once flower and need replacing or the #echium-candicans grow more like a shrub and bush like once flower won't die after flower will continue to stay evergreen during winter may need winter protection during risk of a freeze. Hope the info helps I taken seeds from Chiltern or I could send you a baby plant, they self seeds with me 😂🤦🏼‍♂️@mojo

Good morning Steve, I'm excited now 😀 I think the echium candicans will be a fantastic shrub for that spot in the garden and that it stays evergreen is even better. I would love one of your baby plants please. It would have so much more meaning to me knowing where it has come from 😊 Just a shame I can't come and collect it myself 😀 @lamaisonbleueoleron

If you go to the website on my profile and send me a msg on the enquire form with your address I'll arrange one to be posted over. Or you can ask @mikethegardener if he'll come and collect it for you 😂😱
