Try Lonicera caerulea Honeybee (Honeyberry) in your allotment or garden; a free-fruiting shrub that is extra hardy through the winter down to -40⁰C (-40⁰F). A rare alternative to other soft fruit like blueberry plants, variety Honeybee rewards you with fruit every year.

The fruit is up there with blueberries in juiciness but is slightly tarter in taste with a more astringent aftertaste. Before fruiting in summer honeyberry plants give you a flush of fragrant white flowers in spring.

As a tall shrub Lonicera caerulea is an ideal variety to add structure and height to your garden. It also brings in important pollinating insects like bees and hoverflies. These insects stick around to pollinate nearby strawberries, fruit blossoms and fruiting vegetables.

We suggest you let your shrubs establish in their first and second year. Just sit back and enjoy watching your shrubs settle in. In the third year prune your plant to keep them healthy. Prune a third of the older stems right down to soil level, and lightly prune the side shoots all over to encourage further fruiting stems.

*Compared to buying the single plants.
