I want skimmia shrubs with the lovely red berries in pots outside my door. what type do you recommend.



Skimmias are either male or female, and you will need both if you want berries, or buy Skimmia reevesiana, or its cultivar, Robert Fortune; S. reevesiana needs no male to produce berries.

That's exactly what I was asking for too this time last year and was given a few Skimmia Reevesiana as Christmas presents and they have been lovely.
