How small can I keep a pittosporum Tom Thumb? I have one about the size of a large beach ball, and ideally don't want it to get much bigger. I know they generally do grow quite large but wondered if I keep it in check by regular pruning will it sulk or be ok?

Nice day out at the plant fayre ( never went indoors to the craft part, just forgot).

Came away with 2 rusty iron supports (ooh errr missus!), same guy I've used before.

Got a rudbeckia summering brown and rudbeckia fulgida deanii, to go with the red hot poker and monarda (overcrowding alert!)

Also a dahlia bishop of llandaff ( heard you lot on here talk about it, is is truly  as hardy as the man said?)

And some sempervivums, potted up nicely on the front doorstep.

Then a lovely walk through the gardens, stunning rhododendron.

Might go and take some photos...
