Hi Paul, it appears there was an issue with your image file. It may have been too large. Please resize it and try to add again. Reply to me or yourself to keep in the same thread. Thanks Nicola

Leaf looks like currant (ribes) family, wouldnt advocate eating them though. Not till we have positive id.

Judging by the leaves, I'd say it's a white currant.

Ummm. I'm going to throw another suggestion in the pot - wonder if it could be a guelder rose (viburnham opulus). Have a look at the images on line.

Good luck & happy gardening.

thanks for the suggestions. A white currant looks close, but I didnt know they grew to be 7 foot tall. The Guelder Rose looks similar, but the berries are not really turning red. They are a faint orange and very ripe now. Perhaps I should just try some and see !

That's a guelder rose, almost certainly.

Hi,
It is a variety of the Guelder Rose, but our native plant has bright red berries. As yours has yellow berries I think it looks more like a different variety - the Viburnum opulus Xanthocarpum.

Well done Sue, we would agree with this suggestion...dont eat it!
Colour berries threw us off the scent too.
