It's something I've wanted since I started, and although I haven't gone out of my way looking for one, it's the one plant I've never seen for sale (that and Garrya..another that I want) I could order online, but shrubs are something I want to see the shape of before I buy. However my friend has just told be about a nursery that I haven't been too 🤔 And from what she's said it could be promising
