Rhamnus alaternus 'Argenteovariegato'

This Italian buckthorn has finally found where it is happy. Having been first in the Hot bed and then in the Veg bed (neither of which it liked) it has now shot up to hide the huge water butt in the side passage and is flourishing in its pot. It has grown 1.5 metres since coming out of the ground and into a pot (albeit a very large one). Most extrodinary but very welcome since it is evergreen, looks a lot like a Pittosporum, flowers and has little black berries, all of which I can now enjoy through the kitchen window as i work and blog.
