Berries and Blossoms on Year Old Tundra

This Tundra's pollenizer was a honeyberry labeled "Blue Velvet" that blossomed earlier than the Blue Moon or Tundra. Blue Velvet is supposed to be a late bloomer, so this is a bit of a mystery. Blue Velvet is not supposed to be a great pollenizer for Tundra as they are related, but some pollenization will occur even from related plants. (Bernis, from Matt's report)

  1. Nice to see. I am hoping for blossoms on my Tundra and Borealis plants this year. I have 1 of each as checks for my own seedlings. As to pollination, it always surprises me that there are a few berries and there seem to be no pollinators around. This has happened to me in the early days.
