Tip: Pick all berries or cut off shoots that have borne fruit.
The berries on the bushes will turn into seeds if you don't pick them. When they go to seed, they reseed themselves and go back to their original wild nature. And yes, nature is good at reminding us that we can't control everything. So berries are food for birds, who then scatter them and they become seeds and the wild can therefore be seen all around. But now you know it's probably just a bird that's enjoyed a delicious berry meal.
