Different types of plants with strikingly beautiful blue berries adorn the gardens
Special decorative blue berries.
In the fall besheesters constitute an important element in the garden. Everyone enjoys the colorful fruit, which does not always have real fleshy berries. But they all are decorative. Most species are besheesters twice a year nice when they bloom and again when they bear fruit. It is recommended that in any planting one or more besheesters to take. Forget the types of blueberries, because black gives a special touch to a garden and if it's not just the leaves or flowers.

Blueberries are very special
Berries and fruits that are red or orange, are quickly discovered by the birds as they are delicious, they disappear in no time from the trees and shrubs. But is it red fruits between red leaf, as in some cherry, they see not. It is striking that birds also white fruit between green leaves hardly see. White currants remain long suspended, while the red berries around quickly be eaten bare. Also black fruits are common: in privet, ivy (Hedera), the black hips of the wild-rose (Rosa pimpinellifolia), the berries of elderberry (Sambucus nigra) and black currant (Ribes nigrum). Purple is also fairly common, eg in the berries of Callicarpa bodinieri 'Profusion' and Pernettya. Blueberries are very special. They occur mainly in bushes green, white or yellow flowers.

Beautiful blue enough fruits
Think blue not only hurt and plums (Prunus species), although often beautiful blue. Maybe you shoot the first blue grapes in mind (Vitis vinifera), where Atalanta butterflies love.
Beautiful frosted blue berries of the American blueberry or blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) that acid soil and which keeps the berries are much larger than our native wild bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus, with blue fruits) that much vitamin A. B and C contain. Juniper (Juniperus communis) are blue. In the ornamental shrubs are mainly mahogany shrub (Mahonia aquifolium), with its fragrant yellow flowers Berberis julianae and several Viburnum species adorned with blueberries. Very nice fruit on Viburnum davidii are and V. tinus 'Gwenllian'. It is not generally known that the blue berries of the mahogany tree are edible. Of the blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) knows it does. So out of hand, they are not good, but processed into jams they taste delicious. Also edible, the striking blue frosted pods (not berries) of the special, to 2 m high bush pickles (Decaisnea fargesii).

The different varieties of fruits blue-bearers are so different that they do not care to detail can address. In connection with unhindered flowering and fruiting is usually only corrective pruning required. Give besheesters during flowering extra potassium-rich fertilizer. That promotes fruiting.

The garden in October
The leaves fall. Remove them from places where they can cause slippery or evergreen plants can choke (perennials, lawn). Again they are out of the pond. Choose your besheesters they now bear fruit. They can now fine plants. Bulbs and tubers of plants and non-hardy species of harvest. Mowing grass in so long it grows.
