    No harm done and you enjoyed discovering what’s there, you can always try again at a later date just to double check. It’s just with lime if you apply it it’s on for a few years and it’s not something you can rectify easily but a soil test is the only safe option when lime is required.

    Re-Growing the Berberis

    Excellent Stuartp22 :)By the way, you can shape your Berberis effectively by simple pruning. Those near horizontal branches can be cut back to upward facing buds to encourage vertical growth :)

    He never misses when we're in the office and I ask him to pass the biscuits. The last one caught me in the ear! :rolleyespink:
