I have made frames out of sheep netting, dont know what you call it in other regions, stiff wire with 4"squares, cut about 2'accross with a cane on each corner, they grow up through there and stay reasonably tidy.

The pink one is much shorter but still in a frame.

I wont be cutting mine down yet, its only just coming out.

I use the fungus spray I use for roses. Sometimes they need a follow up dose.

I have bought plants from Amazon and ebay, they were all fantastic shrubs/trees, there is a great comeback if you are not satisfied because both sites rely on good feedback. Go for it with confidence. 

They will tell you exactly what you will get, unlike some places where you expect plants and get plugs.

Definitely, put in the ground or a really big pot. 

You can buy rose and shrub compost for it. Cut it down a bit next march, that should make it move.

Thank you all for the info re ipad, I was looking at the ipad mini 2 is that what you have panda ?
