While sorting my late nans garden ready for selling the house I came across a shrub she had with beautiful metallic blue berries, after searching what it was I found it was a viburnum, now my question is can you grow it from the berries it produces?

    There are lots of viburnums. If it's a species it will grow from the seed and be as the parent. If it's a hybrid it may grow from the seed and be like one of its parents. I'd grow it and see what you get. If you want to be sure of having the same plant - take a cutting. 

    If your cuttings skill is like mine, take lots of cuttings and one might grow

    I should think you can germinate those. You will get Viburnum tinus but not the cultivar 'Gwenllian', you'd need to take cuttings for that
