PS - is this actually box? I tagged it some time ago but not sure it's right. It's starting to flower. The whole bush is about 7ft tall by 5ft wide.

Thanks @tiggrx - I guess I'm not used to seeing one this big.

Thanks - I did wonder that, but I think the leaves are possible bigger on sweet box? @heuchra58

@latebloomer @Amanda66 @bensam59 it is amazing - the shrub is covered in ladybugs. They obviously like it in here over winter 😊

Mature box trees can reach 10m tall so yours is still quite small really 😀
