Hi everyone...Happy Healthy New Year...

It is Terra, and nice that we've had a wet but mainly mild Winter so far, it's helped bed it in...

Worth a shot I think, you'll know to bring it under cover for next Winter to protect it, so you'll be a step in front this time...Nice Shrub...:)))

Yes, I will and put it in the greenhouse in the autumn. Thanks :)
