chicky
Does anyone know a plant/shrub with good clusters of red berries? I am thinking some sort of cotoneaster, but i know there are lots of different sorts so wondered if anyone has a favourite? Many thanks

Viburnum?

About 3-4 foot - width and height. And preferably something evergreen. Hadn't thought of a viburnum - what sort are best for berries?

Viburnum opulus has white flowers and red berries and I think there is a compact variety.  There are types with blue berries as well and others with darker red berries, just give it a Google, you'll find quite a few.

Holly?  Some are self-fertile and berry reliably well, and as they take well to being clipped can be kept to size.
