You're absolutely right bekkie - we have to cut our cloth. When I had my first daughter, money was very tight - even buying a bag of compost was a big deal. I had a blank canvas then, as I do now, but I can indulge myself a little more these days. Remember that if you want cuttings or seeds of anything to try - just ask. Everyone on here is so willing to offer bits and pieces. Aren't we lucky
I think the green Choisya is quite happy in shade, and the gold one likes a bit of shade to prevent getting scorched. I just moved mine so that it gets a bit more protection. It's not flowered yet but, like Lyn's, it's quite a young plant, and I don't think they're as prolific anyway.
