    go round your local neighbourhood with your secateurs and chop a few bits off if you can find any, they root really easily, might take a while to get to a decent size though .... if you have no luck with finding them locally, drop me a pm and i can send you some cuttings, i have one that's due a serious haircut shortly

    They're selling it cheap in Lidls at the moment.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    I think the trees that have been shaped are expensive, as it can take a lot of work

    I bought a pack of 6 (albeit small ones - 15cm) for 5 from Homebase and have seen them at B & Q a little bigger.
    You know you're a hard nosed gardener when you pull the weeds from others plots!
