Hi Eileen, this flowers late spring, with solitary star shaped flowers up to 3" across, followed by spherical, berry like seed capsules, blue - black colour, and are fully hardy, Derek.

thanks for that Derek. I am more worried about slugs having a munch that the weather ;p

Hi Eileen, sorry I can't help with the slugs, I thought it was unusual, when you said I will give it a go and see what happens, that you didn't know, sorry for the confusion, Derek.

no need to apologise. for some reason I have thought it wouldn't be suitable for my garden which is chalk, as it was an acid lover but apparently it loves chalky soils. It used to be a wild flower in one of the ruined abbeys that I used to visit as a child. I remember the berries very clearly but being a child I didn't know what the soil was like.

fingers crossed my visiting hedgehog will keep it slug free.

hope the back is getting better and you are more comfortable.

Hi Eileen, thanks for that, my back is slowly getting better, I did some repotting of some shrubs this afternoon, and fortunately it hasn't made it any worse, so I might be able to do a bit more in the coming weeks, [fingers crossed] Derek.
