oooh aaah daaaaaaaarling thats devine.How lush and green is your verandah.
The glory of the garden: hands in the dirt,
head in the sun,heart with nature.
To nurture a garden is to feed
not just the body ,but the soul.

They are about 7 years old. They are in the sun until about 3o'clock in the afternoon and then they are in shade. They are in small pots as I was told they preferred that and they didn't like the roots to be disturbed. I was also told not to water them too much or at all in winter. I'm not sure about fertiliser.
