How do you keep, over winter, I’ve grown some from seed they are about 2ft high, hoping I can keep in an unheated greenhouse. Lovely specimen!

They don't sell them in GC's I've heard because of how toxic and dangerous the flowers are. I'm sure you can still order them online though but not sure what condition they'll come in @lovemygarden65 💛

I know it's shocked me looking at how small it was! It's classed as an evergreen shrub but I think that's abroad, the leaves all fall off in winter here but it needs to be indoors or in a greenhouse in our winters 🙂💚

It's ' Lemon Meringue' so more on the white side I think. Only about 8" tall so I will look after it carefully, maybe flowers next year although I believe they grow very quickly

@mojo I can vouch for that, I overwintered this as a tiny cutting last year and it's turned out like this now! I was shocked at the speed of the growth

Do you feed yours regularly as well? I've been told they need feeding 2-3 times a week in the summer 😊

3w
comment
wesleybrian

I didn't know it needed that much feeding but this is the first big pot it's been in and I made my own compost last year and put feeder balls in it aswell so I think I'll feed it next year when it's more pot bound, It does love a good drink though! 😅

comment
mojo

Yours certainly looks very healthy and happy I'm sure home made compost makes all the difference to growth 👍 I'm hoping mine should be about the same size as yours next year 😊

Hey @Naomi126 taking softwood cuttings from hardwood branches are the best bet, then a little rooting hormone (although not necessary)in a glass of water till they root, they root very easy with clean water every other day. It's one of my favourites :)
