Hey all! Long time no talk. We are in our house now so I'm working on the landscaping. I have an opportunity to get up to 7 free barberry plants. All I have to do is dig them up. I am wondering if they are worth the trouble. A quick google search provides they are tart invasive berries that are thorny. I love tart fruit. One of my fav plum is a very tart yellow plum and i like the tart apples. I'm wondering if it'd be a good idea to dig these up or not. Description is 7 yr old plants. I am also wondering what time of year they produce? Thanks for any input.
EDIT: Also wondering about pruning...how do I need to prune these guys?
