Underneath a conifer Julie! 🙄 she does get fairly equal measures of sun and shade, but it's quite dry under there and obviously the trees take a lot of the moisture, although I do water her well! 😏 she was doing ok and then half the plant just seems to have wilted... @juliesgarden

I think I probably need to move her Lin 😏 I might put her in a planter... @linfoster

I think you're right lovely 😏 I think I probably knew 😬 although the pink one is as well and she's doing fine...🤔 I don't think this was the most healthy plant to start with, so I shall put her in a planter and maybe replace her with the green and white variegated one I posted! 😬😉 I think that's a tougher looking one 👍🏼 @juliesgarden

The white one however looks rather pathetic Sam! It didn't look great to start with and following the pruning guide has left me with one stem! I'm not holding out much hope! 😬 @icedance Have to do the Limelight today, hopefully that will fare better!
