How to get berries

Posted: 12/01/2014 at 17:20

Hello clk

Holly needs both sexes the rest don't.

If you have to prune a rowan do it in winter

Leycesteria can be cut right back to the base at the end of winter and will still come up and make flowers and berries,

Holly is traditionally pruned for christmas and doesn't seem to mind that.

I prune deciduous cotoneaster in winter  and the evergreen ones when I get round to it

These persicum also have bigger flowers which will go down well with the buying public.

I agree Berghill,  coum, hederifolium and now I think cilicium are reproducing like mad here. 

I may have got some sort of hybrid as well. Just the one plant, very different to anything else, silvery leaves, hederifolium shaped

Probably wise to abandon the ladder Clarington. You don't want to fall off your perch.

I've put another pruning mountain through the shredder.

OH is clearing old growth from the pond banks and today found a very dead fox. Must have been there months and we never got a whiff of it. It's all over now

It is a swizz

These must be quick and cheap to propagate Dove, you never see C. coum in 6 packs at the GC.

That'll be them, thank you Dove.

Alys says they're not hardy but will last into the new year. That must depend on weather. 

I'll wait (fairly) patiently for my Cyclamen coum to flower. Any time now, showing pink

I don't think it's hederifolium, they're well over and not that bright pink.

I've seen these about but I don't know what they are.
