Got one of these....but doesn't look anything like as good as yours-not yet anyway ! Do you know if they prefer a sunny spot ? If so,I will have to move it.

Our garden faces northwest Judy so in summer when sun is high and clears the roof of the house (our garden is "sunken" get the sun from first thing til about 2pm, then the lilac shades it until it gets a bit more before sunset. So about 6/8 hours in summer.
In the winter, it gets a little morning sun (barely an hour) then about 1pm onwards it shines between the branches of the lilac so guess 2/3 hours in total on a sunny winter's day. It is sheltered on 3 sides, lilac, wall and arch so doesnt get the worst of the northerlies. Got a feeling Shirleytulip has a couple too, so ask her, compare the two and draw some conclusions?
