Grow honeysuckle I started a few years ago and now, even regret why did not know about this amazing plant before. Its berries ripen 7-10 days earlier strawberry and tastes somewhat similar to blueberries.

he easiest method of propagation of honeysuckle at home – green cuttings. I quote it in June. Green stalks of honeysuckle, intended for planting, shall be not less than 4 kidney. Leaves 2 lower kidneys remove the shears and two crop the top half. Under the bottom of the kidney do smooth bevel cut. Thus prepared stalk planting obliquely (at an angle of 30-40 degrees) in light soil. Planting so that the two kidneys were lower in the sand layer, and the top two – over the sand. Always water the cuttings and sprayed with water. Within 10-12 days, the roots appear. Such breeding honeysuckles do well in the micro-greenhouse. In even the glass jars can be used as it. The main thing that was comfortable cuttings: warm (+ 23-25 ​​degrees) and humid, but not cold and damp.

Somewhere in the beginning of August, rooted cuttings planted in honeysuckle shkolku on rearing. After planting a flower bed watering profusely and mulch with peat or compost. In sunny and warm weather slightly obscure. In the winter I cover fir paws.

We took in his garden this berry well-lit place, and it looks like it’s her very much. The plant is not afraid to severe frosts, but does not like the cold gusty wind. For best pollination and fruit set on a site it is necessary to have several different varieties of berries.
