I have been using slug banish for two years now and am delighted with the results. I also have used the bio-sterilant mustard and it appears to have have made an impact on the onion white rot which has ruined my onjon and garlic for the past two years. At the present time the onions and shallots are not showing any sign of disease, and the shallots will soon be ready to harvest. I wonder if anyone else has reported this?

This really is a pretty subject to grow - and looks no less out of place in the ornamental garden as it does in the soft fruit cage.
Through the Winter months the bare stems look wonderful as they are bright red and covered with hundreds of spines that make them almost look fury. Come the Spring bright green foliage appears which pales to an almost yellow-white at the time of fruiting.
Following a beautiful show of flower clusters of bright orange berries are formed which mature to a dark red colour - all ripening at the same time. The fruits are very juicy and have a gorgeous sweetness.
Soon to be featured on the new BBC series of The Great British Garden Revival presented by Alys Fowler - who came to see us in the Summer to talk about all sorts of berries. This happened to be one of her favourite berries.
