    Lustrous, dark green leaves and small clusters of red-purple flowers in April and May, followed by large, bright red berries. This compact Japanese laurel is perfect for a small shady site. Tolerant of dry shade and urban pollution, it has bisexual flowers, but if you want an even bigger crop of berries, try planting it alongside a 'male' variety.

  • Garden care: To promote bushy growth prune straggly branches in spring. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant after pruning.
