Uh-oh! Did I mmess up?! (NEED HELP WITH WINTERBERRY)
I just kidnapped two beautiful Winterberry trees about 2 meters tall from a ditch near a lowland area that is often flooded. I transplanted them near a ditch in my yard where they will be likely to continue to get plenty of water but with good drainage. But after reading a little more about my new beauties (still with bright red berries on them, see my photo) I have found that a male tree is required to produce berries! I assume these that I have are females, right? So...do I need to find a male to pollinate them? If so, how do I identify a male Winterberry in the winter when all trees look alike?!!!
