Propagate Honeyberry / Haskap cuttings? Follow along


#121

Nope, dead as a doornail. Im not too worried about it right now, lets wait until you get fruit to evaluate before we waste postage sending cuttings around… Really I have more HB plants right now than I know what to do with! haha


#122

Sounds good. I may have a few berries on Honey Gin, and all my others, so I can make a comparison by July. I think you were propagating Honey Bee, and I saw a video where an older bush produced 8 pounds.


#123

Yeah I have a lot of honey bee right now, more than I have room for by about 30 plants actually, same with indigo gem…

I cut one of my wild honeysuckle bushes back and grafted some honeyberry to them in late march after the honey berries where out of dormancy. They already had buds a half an inch long. They start early. I wanted to try grafting anyway. The thin bark was slippery and easily coming off when I sniped the shoots. I just took all the bark off at the bottoms of the honey berry and slipped them in a bark graft. One out of five took. It appears that these can be grafted to the wild busheshes growing everywhere around here.


#132

Interesting! What variety did you graft onto it?


#133

They just called it honey blue. I think I got it at Gurney’s.


#134

What species is the stock?


#135

I love it!


#136

It’s just an invasive honeysuckle bush growing everywhere in the fields in our neck of the woods. I have no idea for sure.

It’s the one in the pictures that has the yellow and white flowers. Looks like they have invaded a good part of the US.
