Too bad...thanks for the advice, yes I will keep the roof. I think we will have another dry week, but I'll place it probably quite soon after.

Looking good Stan, keep up the good work. Mine didn't make it this year after being in the ground for three years. Kept dry of course in the Winter but there was a lot of frost this year with a low of -7C When I finally dug up the root system there was an active ants nest underneath.

Don't give up Andy. These catch everybody's eye. With the fact they are so cold tolerant- just not in the crown with wet- give them another go. The sooner you get another the happier you will be later.
