Small fruits advice wanted!
Time to get out of hibernation and think about the garden again. This is the year I plan to add many small fruits to the garden. I have some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and grapes. I would like to add perhaps a North Star or Meteor cherry, a Mt. Royal plum, honeybells (?),juneberries, blackberries, currants, elderberries, bush cherries(?), and whatever would be good. I like the berries for juicing, canning and freezing, wildlife, fragrance and ornamental plantings. What do you feel has been worth growing for you? What varieties have done well? What should I stay away from? Any good and cheap mail order sources? I am also looking for plants that will start producing relatively quickly. I have tried many apples, plums, etc., but always end up having problems with them, or moving before the plant gets to production. Any and all advice, comments and experience stories very much appreciated!
