I've recently emailed raintree nursery these questions but haven't heard back from them yet.
I'd like to grow a couple honeyberry plants, I know you have to buy two different variety to get fruit
There are honeyberries that bloom later than other honeyberries, do I need to get the varieties that bloom at the same time.
and I've read that they need high amounts of vitamin c (ascorbic acid) on a regular basis to get them to produce a large amount of berries.
How much is a large amount? How should I mix it, if I buy the powder or crystals.. How often should I give it to the plants. I also thought i'd grow these two plants in large pots. Is this a ok decision?
I also have the desire to grow some currants, I've tried several years in a row and lost them all. thinking I just didn't water them enough in the summer months, i'd like to try again. If I get two different varieties, will the y cross? and if I get one currant and one gooseberry, will they cross? sorry for all the questions.
