Honeysuckle berries, good for birds, toxic for people.
Berries galore! Berries are the jewelled decorations of the garden in November. They also provide a feast for birds. Garden-worthy hedgerow natives include honeysuckle, sloes, rose hips and haws. Varieties of crab apple provide different coloured fruits, some of which last on the tree long after leaf fall. Pyracantha, which should come with a public health warning for its vicious thorns, nevertheless is a prolific berry-bearer. Cotoneaster varieties are more user-friendly for humans.
