looks very healthy, heard they were hard to grow, but seem to have it in the right spot..! It's lovely, I'll bet it smells fantastic.

as far as i know easy to grow, but then i think my soil must be a bit on the acidic side, i have never done a test but i have no problem growing other acidic lovers. so maybe that is why you have struggled before.

As you know, I have now got two of these (not the same species, though) - I really hope that they thrive in my neutral soil! You MUST have acid soil, Angie, as you have thriving Pieris and Rhododendrons. A soil tester only costs about a pound from B&Q, why not find out how acid it is?
