If you got room to let it be less formal you'll get more berries. A mix of berry colours is stunning. There's a large area planted with a mix on a local industrial estate. Fantastic, you forget all about the grottiness of the surrounding area

Buddleia alternifolia, lovely scent

It's cold and windy out there but bright and sunny.

The ribes hasn't put on much new growth, I'm sure it would have appreciated a bucket of water occasionally through the summer, but full of healthy looking flower buds
