Berberries Update

Last week I posted on Bonsai Ireland Hub about a large Berberries that was growing in my back yard for over 10 years, after talking to some of the lads we all agreed it was time to take it up and see exactly what we were dealing with. So this morning I decided it was time to get it out and have good look at it. Here is what I found….
