Our Feedback
The order arrived safely this afternoon and after a break in the wet weather we have been having all morning my husband planted everything in the garden. Many thanks for your assistance and look forward to the benefits in the autumn hopefully. We look forward to dealing with you again in the future as our local garden centre cannot supply items which we have obtained from yourselves and are also more expensive. We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year.

This commonly called black chokeberry tends to be more purple!  Produces clusters of small, pink/white flowers that develop into black berries which ripen through red to purple with lovely dark green leaves which turn a dark red/purple in the Autumn, they really are quite stunning.

Fruits can swell to a nice size, similar to that of a blueberry and are quite tart and bitter to taste (hence the name Chokeberry!) however they make delicious jam and jelly as well as pies, juice or wine and with their anti-oxidant and vitamin content are very good for you.

You tend to find that these plants are more native to wetter ground, even boggy.

Birds tend to enjoy these so we recommend that you hang 'sparkly' things in the bushes to deter them.
