Have two of these, a wee bit bigger than the other...last year I clipped the big one a bit too hard, in an effort to even up the sizes. Big mistake!! Scorched!! Only just starting to recover now...

I did have 4 Karen, but foolishly planted 3 of them together to form a hedge.
The other 2 are cone shaped - I tried a bit of topiary on 1 of them (after seeing a picture on here) and it was a complete disaster, I'm keeping my fingers crossed it gets better.
Yet ANOTHER lesson learned :)

Yes, indeed, Scottish...we live and learn!

They're quite tough though...

I bought several as tiny plants for the corners of herb/veg garden...
I found my two (remaining plants) in a carrier bag under a pile of builders rubble - they'd been uprooted during work - and had been there for over a year! lol! :)
