Couldn't resist this one today, tried to grow it from seed a few years back but couldn't get them to germinate.

Need to pot it on into Ericaceous compost, can plant out when it gets to one metre high.

We only found the poor thing today Chuck at the nursery when we collected some more compost. Zigs wanted to save it - give it a bit of care and attention :happy:

Today I learned about the word Ericaceous and the associated plants families.
Well DM... that's a real good one to learn about. Here, near Dover in Kent the soil is mostly very chalky, and the local nurseries all sell loads of plants that need ericaceous soil. Trouble is, they don't warn unsuspecting customers that the plants will probably die in their chalky gardens! Very naughty indeed :(

That's good to know. I figured Zigs must know not to make tea out the entire plant while still in the pot. :D
