Honeyberries
travel very well and usually bounce back from any shipping damage if given a chance. They usually arrive within 1-4 days, but tolerate a week or more in transit, even when leafed out. They can be planted from early spring to late fall, dormant or leafed out. Nothing needs to be done for winter precautions other than normal deer, rabbit and rodent protection. Some varieties grow faster and taller than others, typically from 1'-2' a year. They put out most of their fresh growth in early spring, then the stems thicken over the summer. They may put out a couple of stems of new growth in the fall, and even the odd blossom. Mulching helps with weed and moisture control, but be sure to leave a couple inches free around the stem. Moderate applications of time-released fertilizer or aged manure along with regular watering is beneficial. They grow in partial shade to full sun (shade recommended for warmer zones). They struggle in excessive heat and dryness, and in overly wet and windy conditions. They have been grown successfully in full sun as far north as Alaska and in the shade as far south as Georgia and California. However, early blooming plants may not set fruit in some west coast or warmer climates due to lack of active pollinators (e.x. bumblebees) at their blossom time.
Remember to order at least one companion variety for every 4-6 other honeyberry plants for maximum pollination. If you don't find what you're looking for, please contact us and we'll do our best to help you out!
