Our Honeyberries are grown from tissue culture, they are virus indexed. In selecting Honeyberry varieties it is important to have a good pollinator. You should always remember that Honeyberries require at least 2 varieties for cross pollination.
You should know that honeyberries fall into summer dormancy after they finish bearing. In warmer zones ( zone6+) with hot summers( 85+F) they lose all leaves and only tiny little buds remind that plants are still alive, sleeping. Summer dormancy starts AFTER they finishes production and it is a natural condition for Honeyberries. In colder zones they do not loze leaves butanyway they look dull and unhappy: but in reality they are gaining new buds preparing for future spring/ summer crop. Most of our new varieties will be ready in mid April but we have some varieties ready to ship now: Blue Mist, BluePerfection, Midnight Blue, Natly, Night Mist, Julia ( 1 gal. Size).
