I am winning!
Way back in June 2007, I bought a beautiful shrub from B&Q and planted it in a large pot. It was only then that I read the label and saw – ‘one season only’!
Well, I asked my very first question on this site to see if anybody had managed to keep it through the winter – and of course got some good advice. I took it into the greenhouse with just a little heat to keep it frost-free. I was a bit scared because all the leaves fell off and it looked as if it wouldn’t survive! But just look now! I have cut it back quite hard and there are lots of tiny green leaves appearing!
I am so pleased, I am really looking forward to seeing the beautiful flowers again. It flowered from May until November!
Its name is Solanum rantonneii ‘Royal Robe’ in case you come across it. It was well worth buying! And thank you again to the members who gave me the advice about it.
