Planted in the front yard after digging them out of the back yard 2 years ago they had made it up to 3 meters high (alot of pruning) before being cut down to less that half height and placed in milk crates. I can't believe they all survived but luckily they did and they now seem to have stabalised and have started growing. At there feet are lots of Aloevera.
