I have moved into a new house and have what I think is a fruit bush they looked like blueberry but the leafs are different in pictures I have seen online
does anyone know what they are
Can you post a picture Julie?
If you've tried posting a pic and it didn't work, try reducing the size. There's a limit on here.
Hope this works
That looks like a blackcurrant bush.
Hi Julie I suspect that may be a Ribes sanguineum, the Flowering Currant which has attractive pink blooms in spring and then has seeds which are very like culinary black currants but which often have a whitish bloom on them like blueberries. They're very popular with birds.
I agree with Dove. The berries are edible but not that nice tasting to humans:
The bush was full yet the birds did not go near them I will have to wait and see if it flowers
thank you all for your help
do I need to prune it as it's huge !!
You don't have to prune it unless it's outgrown its space or is old and needs renovating. If you decide to it do so immediately after flowering as here
The birds will take them when they're ready for them ... then you'll find little ones popping up underneath where the birds have roosted
But beware if you bring flowering branches into the house. They smell like cats!
It's one of those Marmite smells ... Some love it, some hate it. I'm in the first group
