Would Manuka bushes grow well in England?



Leptospermum scoparium does grow here - depends where you live though, and you haven't said other than UK - it needs a warm, sheltered spot in soil which is not alkaline and where it doesn't suffer drought. Does well here in London in a sheltered spot, say against a fence out of cold winds.

I also recommend fast drainage--I've found that clay and bog is not to its liking, at all!
