Hi YDD, this is on the patio of Paul the nursery man I bought it from I have put it in my leanto until the weather get a little better.
Crocus have them @ £24.99 but Paul knocked a fever of for me as I use him quite a lot, a bit expensive but I just fell in love with it.

Thanks Annella, sounds as if your like me my wish list just keeps getting longer. :)))))
I love all the Mahonia Hywel but yes I think this is my favourite of all.
Dee, yes if you can wait it will probably have come down in price by the autumn.

Wow, that is quite a find!!! THis is defintiely going in to my faves and on to my wishlist! Does it tolerate shade like other Mahonias Stroller? Nice pot too btw!

It says on the label that it tolerates both sun and shade Karen.

Knew you would like it BA.

I like the look of this too, Stroller ... am not really a fan of the spikey, and sometimes brutal, Mahonias!

16 Mar, 2013

 

Yes Shirley the common mahonia can be brutal, I just liked the sort of lacyness of this one.

16 Mar, 2013

 

I have just watched GW on BBC iplayer - I love the way Carol took the Mahonia cutting and kept it in place with an elastic band!

I'm another that's just added this too her list! Stroller - you've just made the plaant breeders a few bucks with just one picture. Perhaps you could ask for commission!

16 Mar, 2013

 

So did I Shirley first time I`ve seen that done.
Well Scottish I did get a fiver off, Paul the nursery man new he would sell at least another two when I got home and showed Bro-in-law and friend.

I do like this one Stroller! I have the other ones which flower in the spring. What a lovely time for it to flower and I do like the leaves! I'm going to look online to see how much it is on there!

17 Mar, 2013

 

Thanks Rose, hopefully it will be nice to have it flower Aug to Oct when other blooms are fading.

19 Mar, 2013

 

I agree, Stroller! I looked online and you did get a bargain as the cheapest I found was £24.95!

19 Mar, 2013
