I have one of this type which I planted last year. It doesn't seem very happy and I'm not sure why. Another one for the compost heap, I suspect. You're right about the difficulty of handling them! Yours is nice, Cal.

That’s a shame for you both I enjoy it’s texture and blue tinge. I have it in a flower bed which has mainly left over top soil from a ton bag so the soil isn’t the best and it is facing to the east so whether that helps it I don’t know.
