Really hardy little bushes, Kim. Can even be grown in large pots as they're only a few feet big.

They'll take about 2 years to fruit.

Sun or partial shade. North facing is fine, but you can put them in sun too.

Soil needs to be good though. Moist, but well drained and not too fertile.

Ooo my mum used to have bushes when I was little but I have nowhere in this garden for them unfortunately. I suppose I could try a tub of course
