I purchased an abelia kaleidoscope last year (online) but it has not survived the winter. Supplier was excellent and has promptly refunded my money.
however, on digging up the plant the roots failed to escape its net root cage.....the reason I think why it failed to grow properly.
Since most...if not all....shrubs, etc., we buy are prob grown from small in these nets they are likely to be strangled sooner or later.
our own cuttings are likely to produce better plants so this is what I do with every plant I purchase.....viz., grown without nets.
