They look great Neellan, and the birds will love them! There are lots of berries around this year, aren't there? Hope it's not a sign of a bad winter...

The birds have plenty to go at here Di, it is usually a sign of a hard winter but I'm hoping not!!

Any advice/information on this shrub please Neena ?

It is a very unfussy shrub it seems to grow well in all soils, I have a lot of them dotted around the garden, they were all cuttings off my friend 10yrs ago, she had them planted as a hedge mine are now 9/10' tall as that suits here but they can be clipped to shape to keep them compact if that suits your garden best. I also have the Horizontalis version that is a ground cover shrub, as the name suggests, it hangs over my wall, on this the berries are singularly spaced not in bunches as on the one above. I hope that helps TT

Thanks, Neena.
That's useful information.
Is there a picture of the whole shrub among your photos please ?
