Don't worry, find a good place for it where you don't have to move it and it will reward you. Mine is amazing at the moment.

If you want to re-pot it do it when it isn't flowering.

That would allow the soil to escape under the wood; I think the boards have to be flush to the ground.

I have the soil straight on the Tarmac. I am experimenting with damp-proof plastic between the soil and the wooden surround to see if that stops it rotting so quickly.

Drainage has never been a problem, and I make no arrangement for it. Water always finds its way out.

All my raised beds where I grow vegetables are on Tarmac. Drainage is not a problem. But drying out is.

Any sprouts expert in the house? (pic)

It was always said that the flavour was improved by a frost. That's why many country folk won't buy sprouts until there has been a good frost. The same goes for parsnips.

Picking frozen sprouts must be one of the nastiest jobs going.

Now is the time to purchase mixed hedge packs from hedging nurseries. Won't cost you ??2000 and you will be surprised how quickly a mixture will grow.

Avoid Leylandii like the plague. Nasty things, especially numerous ones.
