I ordered a few honeyberry plants and two blueberries from Berries Unlimited and just received them and wanted to share my experience. I got a Honey Gin, Blue Banana, Giants Heart, and Blue Treasure. The blueberries looked good, but the honeyberries looked really bad. I know Honeyberries look bad when they go dormant. All of them looked really small and didn’t have a lot of roots, even though they were in gallon pots. I know Derek posted a similar experience last year: Late season Honeyberries for sale now at Honeyberry USA.
They were also shipped poorly. The plants were scattered around the box with some limbs broken and dirt was all over the box. I did call and they said they would replace any plants that don’t make it through next year, but it’s just a bit disappointing considering how much I paid.
I ordered two honeyberries last year from hirts and they were nicely shipped and had similar root mass, but were in much small containers and were a lot cheaper.
Hopefully these honeyberries are as good as they were described, but we’ll see how they make it. I’m going to plant them out now and wish for the best. I will update in the spring with how these plants are doing.
