Prairie Grove, AR (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Berries Unlimited has announced that it will add six new type of honeyberry plants to its line of over 75 honeyberry varieties by the spring of 2011. Like all of its varieties of berries, such as Russian varieties of honeyberries as well as blackberries and others, each are easy to grow using agricultural technology similar to the cultivation of traditional fruit crops.
First, it is important to choose the variety that is rated for the specific agricultural hardness zone, set by the U.S.D.A. Berries Unlimited’s honeyberry cultivar varieties are suited best for zones 2 through 8. Growers can contact the company via its website to obtain help from its staff in specifying your hardness zone and choosing the right variety.
Whether growing blueberry bushes, or the ever popular raspberries, Berries Unlimited emphasizes the importance of the soil for honeyberry bushes. Honeyberries grow well in most types of soil, but loose, drained, and well-fertilized humus soil is best. Berries Unlimited’s website is filled with detailed information on how to best care for their plants including placing the plants five to seven feet apart in order to provide ample room for growth.
Lidia Shakhova, propagator of Berries Unlimited, said, “With our introduction of new varieties of honeyberries, we want to make sure that all of our customers have all the knowledge they need to have healthy, long lasting, and productive plants. Customers can call or email us with any questions on where and how to grow honeyberries and use our expertise to their advantage.”
Blackberry plant hybrids, among all other varieties offered by the company, also require fertilizer to get an optimum level and balance of nutrients for growth. Berries Unlimited provides detailed instructions on its website about everything from planting and pruning to fertilization and irrigation.
Berries Unlimited, known as America’s best berry company, also suggests planting at least one to five varieties, as the plants require cross pollination. Honeyberries fruit early, at least two weeks before strawberries, so be ready for early fruiting during their prime two to three week period. These plants produce berries at just one year old, and can be productive for thirty years or longer.
