2021 is currently looking like a bumper year for berries on my Rowan, however, should there be a period of hot dry weather between now and autumn this could dramatically change.

The berries on mine are green, so cant see how many there are. But a bit off topic, Have never seen so many blackberry flowers. Could be a bumper year.

Three days of hot weather and the Rowan is looking stressed. Clumps of berries are going brown and dropping off. :(

I took a closer look at mine and there are lots of green berries. I did notice a wood pigeon on it the other day. Don`t know if they would eat green berries.

Woodies usually wait until the berries have ripened. :nod:

Not quite trees, but this year i vowed to tackle the pyracantha hedge. It has been getting to wide, high and wild. No doubt there will be a few bald patches when i have finished, but needs to be done, so i can manage it better.

Don't worry about bald patches as Pyracwotsits have a good capacity to recover from very heavy pruning. Go for it Willpar but make sure you wear your best leather gardening gloves, :nod:
