Good evening folks,
I have bought a myrtle today which is on a single healthy stem and stands at about a foot tall. My question is...can I make it into a spiral topary for the garden? I would keep it in a pot as I know that it needs to be protected in the Scottish winters but would this work? Also, it says that it likes to be in a soil compost. If I mix half compost and half garden soil, will it be happy? And finally, is it a slow grower?
