When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Certainly doesn’t look like it. This looks like one I could have in my garden Jacqueline, another for my wish list, thanks ❤️❤️

Lovely pop of red. We have a few of these that I want to cut back pretty severely. They're on our driveway, used to keep a hillside in check, but they've gotten old and funky looking, plus they get little trims each year so they don't scrape the cars so they are especially ugly shaped.

Who was it who said that you should always have a mug of tea while pruning? So you have to stand back every so often and see what you are doing... #advice-pruning #pruning #beforeandafter

@awomanonabike thank you, this is it! Love the berries and how it looks but it is very fast growing, going to definitely keep it cut back and in shape. Not to keen on the bees around the animals and children though. Will have to keep an eye, when using this part of the garden. :-) thanks for the tag appreciated.

awomanonabike

You’re welcome James. I don’t think you can kill it, it seems to love being hard pruned! I’ve never had a problem from the bees. The main thing is making sure the children don’t eat the berries, though mine did and survived 🤮 @jamesdep

Awesome. I used to have one in a previous house...now I have a variegated one which I love, but the original has the best Autumn colour for sure @awomanonabike ✔️
