Berberis hedging

Berberis make a great barrier hedge with their thorny spikes. Berberis can be evergreen or deciduous plants but the important thing to remember is that the prickles are there all year round - perfect for keeping unwanted animals or visitors out! Berberis have small, spiny foliage in greens or purples that change colour from autumn through to winter. The pretty flowers are small and delicate and are often followed by fruits for the birds. They also make the perfect safe haven for birds who will use the plant to nest in as the prickles make for great protection from predators. 

Berberis are relatively unfussy and will tolerate most soils with the exception of a waterlogged soil. They can also be planted in exposed sites, in either sun or shade, although they do prefer a sunny position as this will encourage the plants to fruit.

It is preferable to prune Berberis 'little and often' as that way it doesn't get away from you.

Berberis, as with most plants, will benefit from a feed and we suggest using chicken pellets as this way you can't over do it.
