Most honeyberry required two similar booming period for pollination. Honeyberries and their pollen partners should be planted nearby within 50 feet of one another for adequate cross-pollination to occur.
Honeyberries can be plant on partial shade or full sun (full sun is at least 6 -8 hours during growing season). Honeyberries seem to bear best in sun in the North, needs some protection from sun in the South. Planting honeyberries on a location that receives instance direct full sun during hot summer months can injure you plant.
Honeyberries prefers a well drained soil with a pH of 5-8
Honeyberries should be planted 5-7 in between the rows and 4-5 in between each plant.
Honeyberries can be planted in most soils but they might perform better in clay soils than sandy soils. The planting hole should be large enough to accommodate the root system with ease. Spread the roots, cover with soil and tamp well. Water plants thoroughly. Honeyberries have a shallow root system so they can dry out quickly. Make sure to keep them watered during dry conditions. Plants can grow 3-8 feet in height.
Optimal fertilization is 3x per year: early spring, May and October. Poor vigor and leaf discoloration often indicate lack of fertilizer.
Honeyberries will ripe early in the season. When harvesting them they are more like blueberries, try not to squeeze the fruit and avoid harvesting them when not fully ripe.
PruningHoneyberry require very little of pruning.
Every 2 to 3 years (in early spring before growth begins), remove damaged, dead, and diseased wood.
Pruning new bushes is necessary only to remove any dead or dying parts of branches. After the fifth year, prune the bushes annually to keep 4-6 vigorous older stems and 1-2 strong new shoots. Avoid cutting off the tops of shoots as that is where the maximum number of flower buds are.
New shoots will grow and replace older stems, which keeps the fruiting cycle going.
Honeyberry plants like about 1 to 2 inches of water per week to help root growth.
Honeyberries can start producing one year after planting and a well maintained plant can continue producing up to 30 years.
Honeyberries are famous for fruiting before strawberries.
