Hi has anybody got any advice on how to grow this in ireland.

I was in lanzarote in March and brought home a couple of cuttings, 10 of them have taken root and have lots of new growth.

Where would be the best place to plant them for the summer?
I have a south facing porch and was thinking of keeping a few in there in pots.

I was hoping to put a few outside for the summer and keep them in an unheated greenhouse for winter

Or do you think it would survive outside

Thanks for any info

Beautiful, beautiful plant but as far as I know, frost whacks it, so you need a frost-free environment. It doesn't like limey soil, either.

Thanks for the Info.
I guess the front porch and kitchen it is!!
No fear of limey soil though, I basically live on a bog!
