Garrya Shrub (silk tassles)

Out by the shed, near the chicken coop. The place everyone hangs out to discuss the various edibles they raise in their gardens/allotments.

I am toying with the idea of getting one of these for us for our 30th Wedd. Anniv. I think they are rather unusual but wondered if they are difficult to keep. So have any of you got one of these or have any hints or tips ??

Thanks

I really like garrya, but we planned to thave one in my previous garden, and gave up when we realised how wide the darn things grow when mature, it seemed likely to push the fences apart
