Thanks chicky, nice to know I got it right. I seem to recall Monty Don saying that chopping the roots off is good for the plant, but it was a long time ago I wasnt sure.
Yes, its the two box balls in the grey pots by the white door. I also have a 4th box ball growing in the garden border, you can see it in the photo below. Im planning a garden redesign where I intend to use more of them, along with some box pyramids. Shame they are so expensive if buying them of a reasonable size.
And yes, there is a chimney pot amongst the others, it was inherrited when I moved into the house
