Thanks Holly .. pleased you like it.

Hi Meadowland and Pixi ...
JR does need pruning now and then.

Hello Paul... hope your JR gets catkins soon ...:o)

Yes, Lulu... JR would be huge eventually if not trimmed....
I try to keep him under control...LOL.

Thank you Scottish..
Some plants seem to have their own personality... and in my garden, this is one such shrub....

... JR watches over my dog run... While I am gardening, he keeps an eye on what Conker and Truffle are doing ...Lol.

I love your JR Tt, every year I promise myself one of these, then forget!! I haven't seen any though at our local garden centres, I'll have to find out where they can be bought.

Hello Janey...
