Lost mine over Winter ... my fault as left it in the pot which then froze solid !
It really does smell like a bar of CDM doesn't it ? No chocolate in the house tonight, shame as football on TV again and I could quietly sit here at the desk without OH knowing !

I've been viewing photos for nearly 45 minutes, no chocolate at all, and now I've seen a choc. Dahlia, time to log off methinks ! Mmmm, there may be a choc Digestive I could have with a cuppa, not the same though ! Off to put the kettle on next. LOL

Thanks Daylily. I'd never heard of it before. I saw it in the GC and I had been looking for a nice hydrangea for here, but I thought this was nice and I didn't like any of the hydrangeas they had.

Thanks Motty, shed or greenhouse overwinter for this as I've never been able to keep one overwinter.

I saw Itea at an open garden a couple of years ago in full flower and went out that week and bought one LOL, they should be grown more, it looks great in that pot :-)

Thank you. they don't like to be dry, so I put moisture retaining compost in there and will try my best not to neglect the watering!
