Solarnum Crispum

I now have berries on my Solarnum Crispum already and its only July. I thought its supposed to carry on flowering until Autumn...Should I therefore remove the berries to get more flowers? I have a SW facing terrace in London that gets very warm.. so its not the cold thats stopping it flowering..

    Same here, just a few flowers left, but it did start earlier than usual because the mild winter meant it kept a lot of its leaves.  You could try removing the flowered/fruiting shoots, which is normal pruning but done earlier than usual.  If it wants to flower again this season, it will after doing that.   :)
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
