Horrible wind knocked down some berries, figured I grow them and see, have grown some by layering which would make it true to plant.
Has any of you grown them and what is my firs step, ...let them dry out first? I just want to save them and plant next spring.
How about freezing them?

One more question,...do I need to take the seeds out? They are very tiny! Perhaps I should squeeze some out and some leave them in more or less in, just flatten them a bit?

This was the plant, the better of the two I have and very productive, called Blue Belle.

The pulp of most fruit contains germination inhibitors and needs to be removed, according to the RHS honeyberry is not different.

Try letting some get overly soft on your counter, gently pushing the pulp through a fine kitchen sieve, then running under water. Turn the sieve upside down and bang over a plate to knock the seeds back out.

Or put a berry (s) on a paper towel and use your finger to 'smoosh' it out, let it dry on the towel open to air a few days and remove seeds.
