What a dreamy shrub Honeyberry is for those of you with a shady spot in the landscape that you have no idea what to with! Delightful Honeyberry doesn’t mind shade at all, and as a bonus it even produces stretched out blueberry-like fruit that might look strange, but it sure is sweet! In fact, you’ll be picking Honeyberry fruit at least a good month before even the earliest strawberries or blueberries have fruit. Native to Japan, Russia and Siberia, this unusual fruiting shrub produces a harvest that is a gorgeous deep indigo blue and yummy sweet to eat picked off straight from the plant. You can enjoy cooking with them exactly in the same way you do with traditional blueberries, including making pies, jams and jellies. Since it is common to cold northern regions, Honeyberry is super hardy—even to temps well below -40 degrees. They will even bloom in winter if the temperatures are mild enough to bring it out of dormancy. The further north you plant Honeyberry, the more at home it feels and will yield an greater bounty of fruit. Even for a complete gardening novice, it can’t be easier to grow Honeyberry. Virtually no pests or diseases affect this shrub at all. It is not picky about the soil it stands in as long as it is well drained. It enjoys a good watering, and you should mulch the root base to keep it moist (but not persistently wet!). Many believe that the berries is super high in anti-oxidants, and this totally unique shrub has been valued for its fruit since ancient times. In order for Honeyberry to bear fruit, you need two varieties for cross pollination. If you order 2, we will send your order with two different varieties to ensure your success. Honeyberry prefers and thrives in partial shade, particularly if you live in southern regions where summers are hot. In colder, northern zones the shrub can safely receive a bit more sun. You won’t believe the birds that will come to visit your garden in search of the berries. Honeyberry is simply a wonderful addition to an edible landscape that both people and wildlife will enjoy! Honeyberry is rare and sells out quickly thanks to high demand and low available inventory. Be sure to grab your Honeyberry and plant now for fruit in the next year.

No Chemicals

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Honeyberry

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Honeyberry.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Honeyberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Honeyberry again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
