The berries make a great jam/jelly and the leaves are good for mosquito repellent tea. It has other uses as well @charlotte #beautyberryrecipe-jelly #beautyberryrecipe-mosquitorepellent https://www.preppergardens.com/mobile/product.aspx?ProductCode=wld%2Dbeautyberry&404;http://www.preppergardens.com:80/Beautyberry-for-Preppers-p/wld-beautyberry.htm

Apparently they are edible but bitter and as Cyndi @cyndi says above they can be made into a jelly which is said to resemble elderberry jelly. I haven’t got enough to make a thimble full so I won’t be trying it this year Charlotte @charlotte 💜💜

This is my first year with it Kathryn, so I'll tell you what mine has done from a bare root in early spring It started producing leaves in early summer and it flowered about two months ago, as the berries formed the leaves turned to a beautiful purple/brown colour then started to fall, leaving just the berries, that's where mine is now. Not much help I'm afraid @katgreen 🤔🤔

The spare bicycle wheel is on the fence as you well know Sire, Carlsberg will have to do and the spade is next to the greenhouse. You will have to dig the lawn up, preferably in the front garden. My palace awaits your immediately attention @scaryskates 😂😂

I'm very sorry but I'm beginning to question your ability to care for your trusted mount Sire, there is a distinct difference between one end and the other although they can both be a bit smelly @scaryskates
