Nice bush mate! How are the seeds coming along? My seed pods seem to take forever to mature.

Is it in the ground? Do you think it can withstand winter temps?

;) thanx I just had it styled at the salon lol ,

haven't seen seeds yet but not really looked much to be honest, I think I've had Heimias (myrti too) seed before a few years ago but this time round yeah there shall be no overwintering and I reckon it will make it, well I fkn hope it does but not enough to bring it indoors but I think it's chances are pretty high.

 

if it seeds do you want some?

if its anything to go by, a very established privet dried out and is on the verge of dying from drought after having been repositioned in the same conditions a foot away or 2

 

anyhow i hear they can grow 6ft x 6ft in the ground so perhaps some shape pruning and maybe some bonsaiesque broom or maybe even a literati could be the trick for space saving.

Yeah it seems to take drought pretty well, I don't think I've seen mine droop once.

Thanks for the offer on the seeds but I should be able to harvest some from mine, I opened a pod and they are there, just still immature. The seeds are tiny, there's hundreds in those little ball shaped pods that form after the petals fall off.

 

Fingers crossed yours makes it through the winter, if it doesn't I got you with a cut next spring.
