Cutting off faded Skimmia Berries

Posted: 16/07/2013 at 11:49

Doesn't matter either way, but if the berries are left they germinate often before dropping and can be planted in a seed tray.

I used to have a Skimia hedge which I kept to a regular height by pruning annually, cutting alternate branches/shoots as they only flower on previous seasons growth, so if you cut all of the new growth you miss a season's flowers and berries.


please ID this plant??

Looks like a St Jonns Wort to me (Hypericum) but I don't know which one. An internet search should tell you more try google images. Be aware some of them can be invasive by spreading or self seeding.
