Plant of the Month
Berry-bearing trees and shrubs come into their own in autumn, creating
colourful displays that can last well into winter.
From elder berries to rose hips, crab apples to firethorns, the
addition of berrying plants adds to a new dimension to any garden,
with plants carry fruits and berries through autumn and into winter.
Berrying plants also provide home grown food for hungry birds and
wildlife too, enhancing their appeal and value to any garden.
Evergreen shrubs provide structure and form to the garden throughout the year,
but many produce early displays of flowers followed by autumn berries.
Once of the best compact shrubs for borders or patio pots is a Skimmia with a mouthful
of a name, Skimmia japonica subsp. reevesiana. Dont let this put you off as its displays
of bright red berries are second to none!
