Good Berries

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

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

Thanks all for anniversary wishes - always get a bit nostalgic on a day like today. It seems like yesterday, and yet the calendar shows me it clearly was not!

Acorns galore here too this year - never seen so many littered all over my borders.  They say it has been a great year for fruit and berries, so I guess acorns count.

On a related theme - thinking of getting a "berry" plant this weekend - anyone any recommendations on a cotoneaster type shrub with lots of bright red berries ??

Serious! Really

Morning potty and dove and all those gardening peeps yet to come. Lizzie, you need to find time for a catering size box of crunchies in amongst the plants in your boot on your next English visit.

And a chorus of Happy Birthday to Fairy - definitely got the day right today. Have a wonderful, cake filled, day

Hey Gg - good to see you're keeping busy (do you ever stop??). Primrose blue jean sounds pretty. Enjoy Hilliers tomorrow - will you get chance to peek at the gardens too? The leaves will be starting to turn and they always put on a fabulous display there.

Evening all - quick hello then off to sleep. Had an evening of pilates - so feeling suitably stretched.
