Mahonia Caress is flowering



  • I've had one in a pot for a few years.  Not had any sign of being tender.  I'm inNorfolk so not as wet as some areas but cold. It's north facing so not much sun warmth.  I've not protected the pot either.

    Oh dear Snoodle - what are you doing up at that time of night?  Littlest one teething?

    Hope you got some sleep eventually image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.


    Does anyone know what causes the growth tip to die off with the Soft Caress type. My Mother's did that and recovered well but mine has too but hasn't quite recovered.

  • It could be hardiness. It's growth tip died off in the spring and it's stayed the same all summer with no recovery. Maybe I'll have to stick a bell jar over it when the cold gets in. I live in the north dorset area but it can get proper cold where the ground is low lying as we're quite inland here. Thanks
