Pot grown plants can be planted at almost any time
- only avoid planting in freezing conditions or if ground is waterlogged.
They're very common, but due to the current crisis, you may have difficulty getting one.
You also need soil that isn't alkaline for it to thrive. Neutral to acidic is perfect.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
Normally, l would say that most garden centres would have it in stock, but of course these are different times !
There's some more information about growing it here
Also more info and a list of stockists here
You may be able to obtain it by mail order.
