Plant seems to be thriving! It sits on the window sill behind the sink in the kitchen which is heated by a Raeburn. The window is north facing so no sun at all and this seems not to be a problem. I am trying hard to make watering regular but fairly sparing. The purchase was with a birthday gift voucher and the 5 stars reflects firstly the successful purchase and secondly encouraging resilience of the plant itself. I look forward to being able to plant it out in the spring.
