Wow that's lovely, must give one a try next year,our neighbour has two fabulous ones, one either side of their door they look great :-)

I'm afraid anything with broad leaves just gets shredded in the winds here. My Canna was 'feathered' until the wind finally broke the stem clean off in a gale. They're not worth trying here.

Looks great in front of that yellow leaved plant growing on the trellis. Good luck with the move!

Hope that the move goes alright with the banana shrub. Did you see Monty Don moving his large banana bush on the last programme?
