 This is a picture of my Callicarper which I took I few minutes ago, I think it is lovely. It has took about three years to berry and I threatened this year if it didn't berry it would be on the compost heap. It seems to have worked.

My soil is alkaline and very free draining, I don't think it is fussy about soil type,it's also in full sun and a bit sheltered.

Its easy to look after you don't prune it unless it's absolutely necessary ,I don't think it would do very well in a pot.

hope this is helpful.

How to pollinate a Bramley apple tree...

It won't make any difference at all putting the plum alongside the apples, they are a different genus --- apples are malus and plums are prunus.

good luck and happy planting.

My Penstemons flower the same year i grow them from cuttings, what part of the country do you live? I live in South Devon so maybe it's warmer than where you are.
