Some time in early November of 2011 or 2012 full sized Berry Blue honeyberry bushes were ripped out of an orchard using a tractor and chain. Three days later I planted them in our orchard. I left them as they were the next year, but they only had a couple of new shoots coming from their roots, their branches were non-viable. I left them this way for the next year as well. They did not grow. A year later (2015) I mowed them off at ground level. In 2016 they finally came to life. And this year they are finally established and producing in bare dirt.
