Does anybody know where I might be able to buy these plants? I was watching https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChsbD6Clp-ZPqKwXJR3V7DQ, and he had the thimbleberry in one of his top 10 videos. Since it is about the only fruit that I might be able to grow, I wanted to look into the hardiness and heat tolerance but I am having trouble finding possible suppliers.
I also thought about trying the Japanese Wineberry at one point, and that also seems to have vanished.
I don’t know if I just got bad plants, but the wineberries I have are terribly weedy, thorny and stingy when it comes to producing fruit. The seem to prefer sending out runners everywhere they can rather than flowering.
how well do they fruit? I’ve read some wild ones don’t fruit real well. i have some i got from hartmanns and they are supposed to be good fruit producers. the ones from oikios are also. mine haven’t so far but i think i need to give the some compost as the canes are pretty short. love the leaves on them. mine had a few white flowers last year but none produced fruit.
