In My Garden

The brightest show of berries in my paddock is given by two intermixed bushes of the wild Barberry and Guelder. Those on the Barberry are worth preserving and have a sharp pleasing savour that is very individual. It is a bush well worth growing, and now that it is no longer banned, as a host to wheat diseases, we may plant it with a free conscience.
