Grow your own Honeyberries on the patio! Lonicera kamtschatica 'Balalaika' is a compact cultivar reaching just 1m (3') tall - perfect for growing in large containers. The fragrant creamy yellow spring blooms are succeeded by good crops of oval blue berries with a lovely sweet flavour, and packed with antioxidants and vitamins. Eat them straight from the bush, or bake them in pies and cakes. 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: 100cm (39").
Caution: It should be noted that not all berries of the Lonicera family are edible.

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.
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.
