About Bernie

Bernie is a belter. Happy in even the deepest shade, tolerant of wind lashings and with the most beautiful snowball flowers, he's a great addition to any – and we mean any – garden. It's not just us who love him; bees do too.

Details

Bernie stands just under a metre tall in a 10-litre pot. He flowers from mid-Spring throughout the Summer. He's deciduous so he'll strip back to his bare bones over winter, but this provides a great opportunity to cut him back so he comes back even stronger the following year. Will otherwise grow by about 20cm per year.

Likes

Bernie is unfussy – you can pop him in pretty much any site and/or soil and he'll thrive.

Dislikes

Can attract small flies, Aphids, which, if caught early, can be simply treated by spraying diluted washing up liquid on them.

Looking after this plant

Pruning isn't necessary but if you want to keep him in check, don't be afraid to cut him right back after his flowering period finishes in early Autumn.

Living with pets and children

Bernie is non-toxic.
