Regenerating Haskap (1)

This spring we started to regenerate the 1,000 plants in our original orchard planted in 2008.  Recommended by Rick Sawatzky we used a chain saw and simply cut every seventh plant off at the ground.  The pessimist in us said that it would take years for the m to come back; the relationship we had with Rick told us that it would be otherwise.  The later won out.  Here is a Borealis that was cu off right at ground level three months ago.  Compare its size and vigour to the plants on either side that are now ten years old.  Good things are yet to come!
