Peanuts, was it a blue variety? 

The TRUE blue varieties...not one named True Blue....seem very weak.  I have sought out and tried a few beautiful blues only to find they are less hardy and basically struggle after their first year.

however, I would leave it for now and see how it develops in spring.  Plenty of leaves there though so it will prob be fine

Hiya Rosa

I like this conifer.  I planted one ...not here.....and it grows pretty fast.  Not sure if it will like being in a pot.  See what others say but it needs good soil, preferably acid (which is why I don't have it myself)  and some moisture. 

I think it will struggle in a container

As I said a couple of days ago too many things in flower too list.   I think we can assume most of us everywhere have plenty of flowers.........from out of season,to annuals to early hardies.  

Aa if we havent had enough rain lately it is pouring down again, in for the day and to feature in the outlook so most of our flowers will prob keep going a while yet
