Borealis AND Tundra flowering 2nd time.

Hey now! What the f... flowering? Ok, so i've been babying(or bullying) my HB's to see what they'll do. Forest mulch, Kelp, ammonium nitrate, frequent waterings and voila, they have exploded and after 14 months they are 2' wide and reaching up with flowers. In many cases a 2nd flowering is a sign of a last attempt to reproduce before dying in some plants but apparently this isn't the case! Has anyone had this happen? What can I expect? fruit in September?

I can't answer your questions, but good job! I want to add Tundra in the fall. i have three plants currently. All seedlings really. Mine are in a lot of shade, so i don't want to use a strong fertilizer. Only organics for now.
I have a spot with a little more sun for the tundra.

I just planted mine this year - 1 Borealis and one Cinderella and one "2 in 1" pot of Borealis and Honeybee. Neither flowered for me, but it does seem like one of them has 2 or 3 fruits lol.

You should see fruit in august or september.

So they produced fruit already this year? What did you think of it? I planted 5 plants this year but have never actually tried any of the fruits before.

Congrats!

I got two this spring, Cinderella and Borealis, and both are healthy but very small still.

They are maybe 10 inches across and 8 inches high. I figure they can only be one or two years old, max. Do you know how many years old yours are now that they are flowering for the first time?

If mine fruit next year I'd be really happy.

Can you post pictures?

Ld,
I got mine as little 1 yr olds last yr. I did have several blooms earlier this year and ate the fruit, but they needed more time. Ihave to find the charger for my camera. Ugh.

I did read they can throw a blossom or two late season, so it's not unusual. It's mentioned in the description at honeyberryusa.
