  • Avoid Pyracantha - had a really serious poisoned finger from a thorn going through thick gardening gloves! In general, red berries are preferred to yellow. A decorative Elder such as Black Lace is good if you don't mind coloured bird-poo, but that applies to many fruiting shrubs. Of you want to stick to smaller shrubs, try planting in containers - this will keep even quite large species small - a bit like a semi-bonsai effect!
