Artist's Description

My Granny used to say ‘lots of holly berries means a big freeze is on the way’. However, is this actually true? With masses of red berries on the holly bushes this year, are we set for another cold winter?

There are those that insist It is the spring months that actually affect this quantity of berries, not the likelihood of a chilly winter. If, in general March and April are cold, but not freezing, and a warm summer follows then holly with be fruitful. This is because harsh frosts kill the white flowers produced in early spring, so pollination does not occur. Similarly, if the holly is not regularly watered in summer, it is to hot or the plants are not in the shade, no berries will grow as the flowers fall off early. For this reason there are surplus berries on holly bushes this year. The UK had a chilly January, followed by the warmest spring in over 300 years, with temperatures in the south-east 2.5C above average. However the summer was reasonably moist in most areas and cool, especially in June, which allowed flowers to bloom. In addition to this, a warm autumn has meant there are also surplus seeds available for birds to eat, so they are not eating the berries as early.

Time will tell but my money is on my Granny.
