Odd honeyberrry growth
This year honeyberries are finally available in decent numbers here. They have been all the rage in the last few years in canada (possibly with a bit of bias, since they have been popularized by the U of sask)
Anyways, I got 4 plants - 2 borealis, one Honeybee and one Cinderella. One of the borealis and the cinderella went in the ground in late may and the last borealis and honeybee went in by late june, early july.
The borealis and cinderella were planted in an area that gets sun for at least 6 hours a day, and are near other plants such as hosta, rhodo and ferns. The honeybee and other borealis are about 10 feet away, near a south facing corner, and get just a bit more light. They are next to a seeding pear.
The first plantings - borealis and cinderella have not grown at all. They do not seem to be dying or rotting. No fungal disease or pests either. It gets weirder, when the second borealis I planted hasnt done a thing either, when the honeybee, right next to it, has put on a good 6 inches of growth.
Anyone have experiences like this?
