I grew this plant from a cutting that I removed from the golden euonimous that was already growing in my front garden when I moved in. It was plain green which I rather liked the look of so I potted 3 up. Luckily they all grew and I planted one against another wall in the front garden and 2 I left in pots. I had a laurel cutting growing in the pot too but I decided to repot in a larger one and separate the Laurel and repot that as well.
When I finally got the plant out this is what I found… not a lot of soil, if any !

I tried to separate the laurel but found it impossible as the roots of both plants had intermingled ( ohh that was a good word ! ).In the end I had to literally cut the Laurel out, it was a case of kill or cure.I then put the euonimous in the new pot and watered and fed it.Fingers x….

The laurel I planted and fed also.

I did these on the 5/5/12 and so far they seem to be doing ok. :-))

I think plants are a lot tougher than you think. They probs do OK and I've done cuttings from eunymous before and they're easy to grow.

Sometimes its a case of kill or cure, they now both have a better chance with their own space, I find if I plant cuttings properly and have them in the greenhouse, I lose most of them, however if I just stick them in the ground and leave them to get on with it I stand a better chance of them surviving, lol...
