This really made my day yesterday. What normally happens is that we plant something in the garden and it immediately starts to die off. However, in the second year it comes back to life, it happened with the honeysuckle and it now seems to be happening with the holly.
When we put it in the ground, the leaves started to die off, berries went and never came back. But! whatever way I was looking at it yesterday I saw that there was a load of new leaf growth – a light green growing above the deep green of last years leaves. Upon closer inspection – we have BERRIES! ok they’re green right now but it will be a lovely crop when (if) they turn red.
