We have several giant BOP in a pot which has cracked. We are about to move into a new house and only have a small yard. I was considering separating the tubers and placing one or more out the front of the house but have heard they can grow up to 30 feet.
We only have about 3 metres from our house to the curb.
We are in Adelaide & perhaps they won't grow as large in our moderate temp
How do we keep it under control if we plant at least one as a specimen plant out the front, and how far away from the house should it be planted? Is it a good specimen plant?
I've heard that it needs 1/2 dose slow release fertilizer once a month until it gets to the desired height, and then full dose once a year to keep the growth to a minimum.
