Hi all I asked the below in a different part of the forum but perhaps here is a better place,
I'm in the process or re doing my garden to make it as wildlife friendly as I can and get the most out of the space I have.
Currently having a dilemma about what shrubs to put in. Contoneaster and Pyracantha are on the list but I wonder if anyone can help with the below?
What species is best? I don't have a huge space around 2 -2.5m square so will have to prune. i've read that some berries are not as favored as others and want to make sure I get the best thing I can.
C. Lacteus was what I was thinking.
This seems like a good option but the thorns are a worry. Are they a danger to young children?
Again what species is best?
Any other suggestions welcome!
Many Thanks for any help!

In the space you're working with (as referred to on another thread), I personally would go with something like this. (I hope Adrian won't mind me using his blog)
