A beauty, the perfume carries quite a distance on a still day (or you can cut a small flowering twig for indoors). A bargain at £2.95 - Carol strikes again !! :-)

I'm going to put it as near as i can to my front door, not sure if to put it in ground or a very large pot. Cheers MW x

I had one in the border in my last garden and it was 7ft high by about 5ft wide and I used to cut a third of the old stems down to ground level every year. It may not grow so big in a large pot, but never tried it myself. I also grew a Clematis through mine for summer colour. :-)

Thanks for telling me it says on leaflet that it, well suppose to grow 1.8- 2metres high. so thats about right is'nt it.

Yeah, I think so Carol. I'm afraid I can only visualise things in feet and inches and pounds and ounces - no matter how hard I try ! ... lol

Thanks very much MW, will check it out. I use to subsribe monthly for the mag up till last month then canceled it as they pile up in mag rack and not read, so thought i'd just go and get a magazine when i fancy one.
