Hi Mike I sent you a message a couple months back but I don't think you got it. Do you have an email i could talk to you over? I would like to  buy some

Shoulda emailed me.  I don't why but I get notice PMs here erratically.  I've responded to your PM.

Due to someone backing out of an order, I still have plants available. 

dirk maes wrote:I've started 20 years with 2 plant, bought at Haeberli, a Swiss nurserie . Both Lonicera kamtschatika,  Amur and Maitop. My soil is sandy and a bit dry. I only mulch with grass cuttings. I have always had fruits but they where on the small side. 5 years ago I bought a new plant. No idea what origin but blooms 2 weeks later en does not grow that high only 1 meter, as the other haskaps grow easily 2 meter. Since then the harvest is steadily increasing as is fruit-size. For me its a good early fruit crop , starting early May,  with more aroma then sugar. Very few diseases but droughts are not always endured.

Sounds like Amur and Maitop are related, hence the low yield, and that the new plant is unrelated, hence the much improved yield.

I would highly recommend Aurora from the University of Saskatchewan. It's vastly superior to Borealis, Tundra, Honeybee, Indigo Gem, Indigo Treat and Indigo Yum. Aurora is truly sweet not sweet-tart or tart- sweet. And the fruit size is much larger - consistently 3.2 cm.

Some exporters to Europe - Haskap Central, Lovehoneyberry who has a European phone +44 7747 738364, FloraMaxx Technologies and Prairie Plant Systems now Prairie Plant Fruit Trees. I'm not sure about the last one because their website is in transition.

No roots to take up nutrients so no nutrients are necessary.  Once rooted cuttings are removed and potted up, encourage root growth with a fast acting phosphorus product. Something in the 9-45-9 range.

You don't have to use a misting system. Covered clear totes kept in the shade work for most things. Check out Mike Kincaid on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTVGyD_baZU0y-63OHb68tw/videos

It's easy once you get there.  LOL The getting there is not so easy - it's not intuitive!!!

Here's a video on programming it.  Don't be concerned about the difference in model numbers. It's the same controller.

You'll also need a solenoid valve which is controlled by the timer.

Thanks to everyone who has placed orders.  I'm beginning to get towards the sold out point but I will have some room for more orders.  If you are thinking about it, don't think too long or you may be disappointed.

I'll be offering rooted Bocking 4 and Bocking 14 cuttings again this year. All plants are inoculated with mycorrhizal fungi. You all receive instructions on how to get the plants to recover quickly from the shipping shock.

$4.00/plant + Xpresspost shipping. I ship by Xpresspost bubble mailer on Mondays only which means that you'll have the plants within 3 days and avoid weekending in the post-office.

Unfortunately, I won't be offering pieces of root this year since supply is a bit limited and I want to let the mother plants put on some growth.

Payment is by Paypal or Interac.

eMail me at the address in my profile.  Please do not PM me as I have problems getting PM notifications and you may not get a response.
