Blackthorn

A reader suggested I plant some Berberis to prevent kids climbing in to my property to retrieve their football (and breaking my fence in the process).  However I discovered that the MET police have a website page which names the best spiky plants to deter people from climbing in to your property CLICK HERE.  I opted for the Blackthorn (which in a previous post I mistook for a Hawthorn), because the fruit of the Blackthorn is used to make Sloe Gin which I love.

I bought my Blackthorn plant form EBay but this hedging website seems to be a good place to purchase - they seem to know their stuff.

Here's my bushes just arrived -
I can't wait for the berries!
