Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Indigo Treat Haskap (Honeyberry)



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Indigo Treat Haskap (Honeyberry).

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Indigo Treat Haskap (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 Indigo Treat Haskap (Honeyberry) again after the transplant is complete.

Does the Indigo Treat Haskap shrub REQUIRE a pollinator Gem Haskap or is that optional? It is listed under 'extras' when ordering plant the plant on the site...

Thank you!
J Q on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will require a pollinator.
What are the temperature requirement for chill hours ?
Marie on Feb 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They need 1,000 chill hours.
what pollinator do I need for this?
TM C on Sep 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is Dr. Bob Bors from U of Saskatchewan suggestion:

Plant varieties that are not directly related as pollinators. The new U of S varieties are related to Blue
Belle, Blue Velvet, Kiev #8 and ‘Tomichka’, so these may not work as well. It is more likely that other Russian varieties could be acceptable pollinators such as ‘Berry Blue’ ‘Berel’, ‘Gerde’, ‘Ognennyi Opal’ or ‘Dew Drop’. Why Russian varieties and not Japanese or Kuril Island types? The Russian varieties bloom the same time as our new varieties. Japanese and Kuril types bloom 2 to 3 weeks later. Of the above possible pollinators, I’d recommend ‘Berry Blue’ (also called Czech #17) because it is a fast growing tall plant that makes many flowers. The flavor and yield is acceptable although the fruit size is very small.
