Our Myrtle (Communis) is now 3 or 4 years old and, after a couple of early savage winters had taken their toll; it looked pathetically burnt so I pruned it hard back. Last year it greened up, looked much healthier and had a few sparse blooms. THIS year, it's amazing and yet it's been outside in a west facing pot for the past 2 years facing all that mother nature threw at it - which was plenty earlier this year! It's an absolute mass of bloom and fragrant fuzziness. No wonder all royal brides have a few springs of this in their wedding bouquets!
