During early summer, attractive clusters of green-white to pink flowers start to bloom followed by clusters of dazzling-white, conspicuous, round fruits, 1-2cm in diameter, which persist into the autumn. This bushy, rounded shrub can make a fast-growing, multi-stemmed deciduous hedge and is an important winter food source for quail, pheasant, and grouse. It is not edible, as ingesting the berries can cause mild symptoms of vomiting, dizziness, and slight sedation in children.

Sowing Advice

Seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. Sow into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of year, cover to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; seed tray is best left in a cool protected spot and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in spring, regardless of when sown.
