Young Plants in 3 and half inch pots

The picture below (taken in May 2014) plots the progress of our 3 and half inch potted plants over time.

The far left one newly arrived from our propagator’s greenhouse, May 2014). The middle one is a similar plug with about one month’s of Spring growth (Arrived April 2014).

We recommend that these 3 and half inch potted plants should be potted up in one gallon or two gallon pots before planting out in the orchard. This helps to maximize growth and eliminates weeding costs in the first year.

The right hand Haskap plant and other plants below were potted up and are about six months away from being planted out in the orchard.

8 to 12 month old plants in one gallon pots


Haskaps and Honeyberries are related and are found in the honeysuckle family. Both belong to the genus Lonicera and species caerulea but are divided into different subspecies. Because Haskap and Honeyberry are common names, there is sometimes confusion over naming.

In general, Honeyberry refers to Russian varieties –Lonicera caerulea L. subspecies kamtshatica, edulis, boczkarnikovae. Haskap is the name used in Japan and refers to Lonicera caerulea subspecies emphylocalyx.
