2 year old rooted cuttings 

‘Grade B’ plants are smaller seedlings that finished the season a bit undersized to be considered ready for field planting for many folks. They are healthy and alive, but a bit small (usually less than 8") and able to get lost in the weeds quickly. They can be field planted to their final homes if you are on top of  watering, mulching, and weeding. We recommend  planting them in a home nursery bed to grow for one full season, develop much larger root systems and be very ready for tougher conditions and less care next year. This is an affordable and sensible way to start small so you can go big with your plantings.

Haskaps, aka honeyberry, are the new hot plant for cold climate berry production!  Haskasps are a dense compact shrub growing new basal sprouts every year with beautiful foliage, lovely blooms and producing delicious blue berries that taste like a cross between a blueberry and raspberry. Considered a superfood type berry with higher micronutrient contents than many of its berries contemporaries.

Our plants are grown from cuttings taken from a diverse planting with more than 3 varieties present to ensure good pollination. We got these cuttings from a friendly woman unsure of their origin but are likely a mix of Russian and Japanese genetics. This year we are offering pollinator packs of the distinct varieties as well as a mix pack blend of unlabeled rooted cuttings from different flowering timed bushes.
