Talkback: Holly and berries

Posted: 13/12/2013 at 16:40
my holly is full of berries too! just waiting for the redwings and fieldfares to come, the berries as do the woodys. I agree that we should grow more berry bushes rather than putting out fat balls but having said that I like to watch the antics of the birds on these .

Advice needed please

I have this tree shrub for over 30 years and I have few problems with it. Yes it does throw up suckers but you just re-move these and re-pot /plant or throw away and if it begins to drop its branches you just prune it to  a standing shape, it takes it.it is a pretty tree  in Autumn and the seed flowers are striking. but plant it in the right place as the branches do hang a bit.

When do I cut back my Hellebores?

I leave mine until spring as I like the flowers and the leaves.
