I love these Drc...I bought 3 about 6 years ago (quite expensive too)...I grew them in pots...read up on them, but they never really progressed any..Then last Winter they disappeared and i dumped the lot...:<(

Well its funny you should say that Motinot, I planted 2 last year and they have not grown at all.

I have just looked at a growers site and it says they need a lot of water in the first year to get them off to a good start.
But it did not say that on the label, so they were quite dry last summer and the 15 week drought this spring.
