Lonicera kamtschatica 'Eisbar' (Large Plant)

Honeyberry

Hardy Shrub

Despite its compact proportions, Lonicera kamtschatica 'Eisbär' bears enormous fruits of up to 4cm long! The oval-shaped, blue berries have a delicious, sweet flavour and are packed to the brim with vitamins and antioxidants. Use them in pies, cakes and jams or eat them fresh picked from the garden. Honeyberry plants are not just productive - their creamy yellow spring flowers have plenty of ornamental value too. Grow them in shrub borders or plant a group in the kitchen garden. These hardy deciduous shrubs are self fertile but planting them in close proximity to one another will improve pollination and increase your crop of tasty fruits. Height: 1.5m (5'). Spread: 1.2m (4').

Caution: It should be noted that not all berries of the Lonicera family are edible.

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.
