  • Thanks all for your replies. image

    I've googled Skimmia japonica ssp 'reevesiana' and it looks very much like it.

    They have many lovely specimens at the castle.

    A good crop of berries can only be guaranteed when these shrubs are 'multi-planted' ; ie:- different clones and both genders image . The more the better .
