Thats really interesting thanks. I keep looking and talking to my wineberries and they are growing very well. Im really pleased that like the rest of the fruit bushes that they grow well at height too. Here it is 900ft. Robert hart who lived at around 500 ft, had a plant on the corner of his little shed as you went out of his garden. They looked so perfect you could have sworn they were plastic. They werent a common plant. I plucked one,and felt a bit of a thief. Xfrank
