kris could you tell me if the spiders web is as hardy as the common one or would you keep it in a pot so it can be moved into the greenhouse?

I have 6 spidewebs planted in diffrent places in my garden and all have come through this winter fine I had lows of -9 and a long cold winter here in east anglia. 3 of them were planted the winter before and all came through that fine aswell had a couple of nights around -12 then.Plant in a shady spot out of direct sunlight as the white leaves can get scorched by the sun and they then look pants.

thanks for the advice Brendan I will put it in a shaded area in the garden, and yes when I saw it I thought that's a good price and its the first time I have seen one for sale around my area so I snapped it up.

I would have thought the fatsia would have been a small fortune.
