We planted a small choysia for a wedding present but it has hardly moved on at all in 2 years, we would like to try to help it. Please help us with this, it is at the front garden alongside the pavement. Thank you.



Do you have a photo of it? That would help a lot!

Did you add any feed for the roots when you planted it? Do you add fertilizer in Spring every year?If not, do this every year and make sure that it's firmly in the ground [the plant].We put one of these shrubs in 2 years ago and it's quite big already.You may have poor soil which needs nourishment, or maybe you planted it in deep shade?

Which variety is it? The smallest, choisya 'White Dazzler' is a small narrow leafed shrub, the others go up in size from C. 'Goldfinger' (3ft), C. 'Aztec Pearl (4ft) up to C. 'Sundance' and ordinary C. ternata which make 6ft

yes Worthy, you are quite right, I hadn't thought of that!
I was assuming the 'ternata', but it could have been a small sized one to start with.
