Part of the Honeysuckle family honeyberries (Lonicera caerulea) are originally from Siberia so are very well suited to the UK climate. They are vigorous climbing vines growing 2ft to 3ft every year, and so will be very happy grown up a fence or trellis. Flowering in spring the fruits are ready to harvest each autumn and taste similar to blueberries. They can be used in puddings jams and preserves and are full of vitamins.
Current Description
The honeyberry plants have sprung back into life with new season foliage, and are looking lovely and bushy. They have finished flowering for now but will fill out even more over the summer making them a great gift for a gardener or cook. Much further along than pictured, we'll update the photos as soon as we can.

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

Honeyberries or edible honeysuckles (Lonicera caerulea) originate in Siberia where they often grow high up in the mountains and so can cope with a wide range of conditions. They are climbing plants and will grow best up a sunny wall or partially shaded wall or terrace.

Whilst your plant is in a small pot it will need regular watering. Aim to water it heavily and then allow the top of the compost to dry out before watering heavily again. As soon as the chance of frost is past in the Spring your honeyberry will benefit from being planted out in the garden or potted up in a much larger pot. Add a top dressing of well rotted manure or other rich compost to help your plant settle in and you may want to replace the pyramid of canes with a longer single cane or trellis as your plant grows.

A relatively new introduction to the UK these easy-going plants do well in a range of soils and produce quite substantial harvests within just a few years. We expect these young plants to put on plenty more growth this year and with a bit of luck you should get your first set of flowers this year and the first crop of berries next summer. Over time your plant will grow into a sizeable vine, climbing up to 3-4m tall with masses of pretty white flowers and good crops of sweet berries each year. They shouldn’t need much pruning just remove any damaged branches or crossing branches after the summer harvest.

The fruits of the honeyberry are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants and similar in flavour to blue berries. Make sure they ripen to a deep soft blue-purple and use them fresh from the vine in puddings or they make fantastic jams and preserves.

Problem solving

Honeyberries are not greedy feeders but if the leaves start to turn a pale or mottled colour your plant needs more nutrients and will benefit from a good dose mulch of organic matter.

If you have plenty of flowers but not many fruits, try using a paintbrush to cross-pollinate the flowers or plant a second honeyberry nearby to improve the harvest.

Honeyberry plants are deciduous so don’t be alarmed when it starts to lose its leaves in winter. These plants are reasonably hardy but if we do have particularly cold spells (-8C or colder) then a fleece or heavy straw mulch will give your plant a bit more protection especially in the first couple of years.
