Berrying Shrubs

Shrubs with brilliantly coloured berries are a real asset to the winter garden. They'll shine from the border when there's little else around, and their generous loads of fruit bring in birds from miles around.

Here are our top five berrying shrubs from the range in our garden centre:

Beauty berry (Callicarpa 'Profusion')  masses of purple berries on bare stems in early winter.
Firethorn (Pyracantha)  evergreen foliage, masses of red, orange or yellow berries.  Great for birds.
Checkerberry (Gaultheria procumbens) low growing, evergreen with berries.  Great for pots.
Skimmia 'Chilan Choice' (Skimmia reevsiana)   attractive foliage and large red berries all winter.
Winterberry (Ilex verticillata)  glossy green foliage, then masses of red winter berries on bare stems.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre for more information and advice about choosing shrubs which have berries.
