Is it safe to plant osmanthus fragrans outdoors?

Thank you very much for your reply, Paul. I will try create a more habitable environment for mine by putting a wooden arbour (with sitting etc, so quite substantial) next to it and hopefully it will provide enough shelter for it!

I bought an osmanthus fragrans earlier this year and planted it in the garden, agaist the west facing fence. (Im in leeds, west yorkshire) it is about a meter tall. I have read conflicting advice as to its winter hardness in the uk. I was wondering if anyone here has got one,where is it planted and how do you care for it please?

Many thanks for your reply in advance :)

I can see that there are a couple of new shoots are just breaking out. It may be that it was planted late in the season and a bit slow to settle down and make new shoots.

Hi amy, what a brilliant idea to start seeds on wet paper.I have some questions for you please: what do you do with the sprouted seedlings on the tissue papers? How long do you leave them on the paper before you transfer the seedlings into a pot^seedtray? Do you pick them out with your fingers?
