As pete8 says grows in the U.K. as a annual, you can grow it outside as a annual will not over winter also the pot it's in does look a little small but proberly too late to change it now it could also do with a feed maybe with tomato feed.

Hi plant pauper, I don't know if CTG applies to me but if it does I live in the south west and the nursery I was referring to only sell Ulex in 2ltr pots so could be a bit expensive for hedging.

You can find it in nurserys fairygirl the one I work at sells a lovely sort which has double petaled flowers and smells deliciously of coconut.

yes it is VERY spiky so you do have to be careful where you plant it.

What is this pretty little plant?

this year I have planted Calibrachoa in two wall planters and I'm well pleased with them, i planted the single petal ones as it's better for bees and insects to get the pollen.

What's this popped up in my new bed?

Welcome to the lovely world of gardening it so nice that you and your small son are learning together.

your picture does look like a squash plant, do you have to move it can it not stay growing where it is?

it would do better at this stage if it's not moved, veg plants do not always have to grow in a veg bed.
