Have two others plants that are growing great guns but both are the same so ordered some different ones for pollinators

I currently have one Honeyberry Plant and I needed to replace the other I had for pollinating which was lost animal damage.

I am determined to get HB growing in my garden, the starts tend to die and or get mildew. However so far out of like 10 purchased from a variety of places, I have three starts that have hung in there and are growing well now. Wanted to add a few more for a group of different varieties.

I want to try them

i can't find it here. i read about them in a farm magazine and decided to try them
Ruthie W on Mar 6, 2019
It was good for my zone (regular blueberries don't grow well here) and they looked delicious. The reviews were acceptable as well.

To get a pollinator for my berry blues
Ruth N on Feb 20, 2019
Been staring at these berries for a few months now, finally decided to get some.
Elena M on Jan 6, 2019
Wanted to try honey berries because more I read about them and was interested in them. Found a good offer here.
Dennis B on Apr 30, 2018
Why not, I have not seen these anywhere in my area. I am a survivor of cancer, so I want this fruit for the vitamins and I can't do blueberries.
JOE S on Apr 19, 2017
I love making jam, and blueberries are hard to grow in Denver. These honeyberries sound like something I could grow.
Diane U on May 25, 2016
Since I have never had Honeyberry berries before but enjoyed blueberries these sounded interesting and worth the effort to grow them.
ANNETTE R on May 19, 2016
Cold hardy and produces fruit in late May early June.
Not the shorter variety
Theresa C on May 4, 2016
money saving collection....need two different varieties for pollination, anyway!

Trying as an higher ph alternative to blue berry
CINDY V on Apr 24, 2016
Tried blue berries and did not have much luck. Soon a little heavy for blue berries. Wild huneysuckle all over the place so decided to try this huneysuckle suckle related berry
Keith D on Apr 16, 2016
We chose this because of its extreme cold hardiness rating.
Dawn M on Apr 13, 2016
Something I don't have so mostly curious and hopefully worth while. Sounds healthy, looks attractive, interesting shape.

Are these annuals?
Flame on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These are a perennial bush. Mine have been kind of slow growing, but the berries are delicious.
Do birds or other animals eat them?
Molly on Mar 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The birds have not discovered them yet. I do plan to utilize simple easy nettings if or when they do. No, other animals do not find the Honeyberry attractive. I am growing several Honeyberry. This is due in large part to Stark's providing such good, healthy, strong plantings. They are wonderful. I plan on ordering more at my wife's insistence.
Are they blight resistant?
George R on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Honeyberries are not known to have much of any pest or disease problems, and are certainly blight resistant.

Honeyberry Plant Collection
It is certainly way too early to write a review of how I like the honeyberries as I received the baby plants late last fall and immediately planted them. So obviously they have not produced any fruit to actually rate. I would like to comment on the packaging as the plants came well watered and protected by both plastic and cardboard inside the sturdy sealed mailing bag. They appeared to be very healthy growing plants, unlike items I've received from other nurseries. I've recently checked on them and they appear to have not only survived the winter but they are already showing buds. Hoping to use them to make wine when they start producing berries!

They grew faster than I expected
I live in the high mountains of Montana where temps get in the 80's during the day and drop into the 40's at night. Many plants won't grow here because of the extreme change in temps every day. Both these little bushes just took off. I was shocked at how much they grew before fall. Nice bright green foliage that made a beautiful bush in no time. Nothing stopped them. I am very happy with them and would recommend them to anyone who wants a hardy plant that bears fruit.

Honeyberry Perfection
I received my Honeyberry collection last year in perfect condition. The size of the plants were a pleasant surprise. One year later, all made it through the winter and are in full bloom! Can't wait to try fresh Honeyberry pie and preserves!

I like the flavor!
These plants bloomed in their second year in our yard and had really yummy berries! Can't wait for the bushes to grow bigger to multiply our harvest.

Slow growing...
I purchased 4 honeyberry plants over 2 years ago, now. The first year I had them planted in a location that was mostly shaded but did get 3-4 hrs of bright sun each day. This area is near a small natural spring and the soil was consistently moist but never wet (was on the face of a hill too, never any standing water). My July Elberta peach grew to a height of 17' by the end of its 2nd year planted in this location also... it was a good place. The Honeyberrys were puny little wimps. They wouldn't grow. No new growth, no improvement, simply maintaining what biomass it had out of the pot from Stark. The first year seemed a total waste. Then I moved them into my nursery beds bc they were too small to keep mulching & mowing around. I wasnt going to keep going through the hassel for these little things. Since being moved to the nursery beds last fall they have shown some growth so far this season. The tallest of the 4 is still only about 12" tall & alittle leggy. My nursery beds are filled with rotting wood (on the very bottom, to hold moisture) and then filled with a peat/manure mix that I compost for a couple years (from our cattle) and add bone & blood meal, all my eggsgells and water it from our big pond of fish. If these things won't grow for me.... I don't know where they would rather be. I have a 4 yr science degree in Plant Cellular & Molecular Biology and these plants are a puzzle. I am still looking forward to them fruiting someday but i'll have a lot more wrinkles by the time that happens! (I'm seriously considering to just pot & train them all to Bonsai... i'm not convinced they are worth the real estate in my nursery beds!) I was so excited about these plants :(

Great service
Got a Honeyberry collection early spring and one was not leafed out yet. After a month there was still no leaves and a quick call to Stark Brothers solved the issue. A new was sent right out and is doing great. I have ten in and they are producing wonderful. Great plants and great service how can you go wrong.

Hardy plant
Thought some critter has eaten my newly installed plant, but it rose from the roots and both plants are now doing well. Considering our erratic weather and late season freezes, this is remarkable. One of the plants even bore some fruit. Definitely a recommended survivor and thrived for Zone 5.

None survived
I wish I could say something good about these plants but none of them survived. Other plants I bought at the same time, like Arona berry and the red lake currants did so I have no reasonable explanation for the early demise of these plants.

Miserly size and far too expensive for the undeveloped state this plants were shipped in.
Miserly size and far too expensive for the undeveloped state this plants were shipped in.

I bought these to pollinate another hybrid of honeyberry I ordered in 2015 and have bloomed every year that I've had them. For $25 for two honeyberries they were shipped knee-high and blooming the very 1st year.

In contrast the two honeyberries I ordered from Stark Bros are not even a millimeter thick at the trucks and maybe 5" - 6" tall. Well, at that size it might be years before they get big enough to bloom and pollinate the other strain of honeyberry I have.

To complicate things the Berry Blue strain I got from Stark Bros is dead although the Borealis strain I got from Stark Bros is still straggling on about 3 weeks after planting.

All-in-all this honeyberry collection I ordered from Stark Bros was not a good value for the money. I am disappointed.
