I have 3 of these in my back garden, planted by a landscaper, but they are in the shade and I see from your site they should be in full sun. I am planning to move them to my front garden where they will get more sun, and was wondering when the best time to move them is? They also haven't flowered very much in the 3 years I have had them, could this be due to the lack of sunlight?

So long as you dig up a sufficient sized root ball and water every week, even if it rains, you can do it now.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun.
Add plenty of grit to the planting hole as it prefers well drained soil.
Water the plant the night before you dig it up, Water the planting hole just before you are ready to replant.Make sure you water around the base of the plant with at least one can full each week until the autumn/winter.You could put a bark mulch around the base of the plant to help minimize water loss

Thanks Patricia, that's really helpful, I appreciate it.

If anyone has any advice regarding the flowering please let me know.

Once the plants are in full sun they will be receiving enough sunlight to ensure the plants will flower.
These plants are native to Australia, so they would get much more summer sunlight than in the UK. once you have them moved into full sunlight I'm sure they will put on a good show next year.

Thanks again Patricia. If the sun shines this weekend I will put this on my to do list, and look forward them doing better next year.
