Q. Honeyberries

We live in an area with a lot of deer. Will they bother my plants, like they do my apples and other fruit trees?

Deer that are hungry certainly will dine on apples and fruit trees.

Honeyberry is considered a cold tolerant plant.

I would check with your Agriculture Dept. for varieties that may be available in your region.

Q. Growing Honeyberries in Grow Bags

Hi ,

I have some honey berry plants in 5-7 gal grow bags that seem to be doing well in the shade under a large fig tree in ZONE 10b Southern California.

Would you recommend that I move them into a sunnier spot even when temperatures have been in the 90’s – low 100’s recently ?

Thanks
JOY

In container, and especially in grow bags, I would recommend that they get some shade. The full sun may be too much since water will leave the container much faster than in ground. In fact, you may even want to water more during these times. I do recommend having fertilizer handy, as they will use these very quickly in container.
