Try a few on your cereal each day to benefit from their healthy antioxidants and vitamins. Honeyberries make an attractive and productive addition to the garden. These deciduous shrubs are extremely hardy and surprisingly easy to grow. Honeyberries are self fertile but planting them in close proximity to one another will improve pollination and increase your crop of tasty fruits.Height and spread: 1'2m (4').

Grow honeyberry plants in any moist well drained soil in full sun. Honeyberries are self fertile but planting them in close proximity to one another will improve pollination and increase your crop of tasty fruits.
Feed and water honeyberry plants regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Honeyberries should be harvested in June as soon as they are ripe. Lonicera caerulea var. kamtschatica will begin to produce a worthwhile crop from the second or third year after planting. Initially, honeyberry plants will require only minimal pruning for the first three years, trimming out any dead or misplaced stems. Thereafter prune annually after the fruits have been harvested. Reduce stems to a pair of strong buds and cut back a fifth of the oldest stems to ground level to encourage new growth to be produced.
