Gosh, that looks like it doing very well indeed, Karen! Lots of flowers and healthy new growth too. Joan of Arc looking pensive!

Yes, am ever so pleased with it Kate, and it had a big prune last year which only made it flower even better! Joan has never got over being burned at the stake…well you wouldn’t would you. :(

That very attractive, Karen. Some of the gardens round here manage to grow them and that surprises me as we're on clay, near chalk Downland. I only see them over fences, though, so I suppose they could be in pots...

Pruning it hard has done the trick, Karen. Yes, poor Joan…you can fully understand her sort of stoicism!

Mine is in a big wooden planter Ang, but that’s because it’s on the patio.
