I've just sown some seeds of that, Don't know if they'll grow ...

Fingers crossed Howell. I only got the one seedling germinated from a packet from a seed company, but that's enough.

I'm pleased you got one …
It said on the pack that they can take up to a year to germinate ! We'll see how they do :)

Hywel, the one seedling germinated almost immediately on sowing. Although I kept the pot over a year, no other ones germinated.

Shame you didn't get any more. I hope it has lots of berries for you. They are a lovely colour.

The flowers are small and pale yellow, interesting plant.

Yes, I had one once but I it died one cold winter.

I fleeced mine last winter, but even so the stem tips were frosted and I cut them back.

I'm glad it survived for you :)

Only small berries, the size of my thumb nail. The lemon coloured flowers are also small. When it gets bigger, providing it doesn't succumb to winter frost, I hope for a bigger display in the future.
