Very good. This plant does not seem to do well here. I've got one in a pot and it's alive but not doing much. The one I planted in the garden died last year.

hi Chris, its a bit like a Rhododendron - acidic and likes dappled shade - and no pruning! so if you have it in multi-purpose compost or full sun this could well be why. try giving it a dose of Rhododendon and Camellia feed - its the right time of year for it and hopefully will do the trick!

Thanks Angie. I'll see if they sell it here.
