Haskap indoors - Svetlana Surprise

I brought in a potted Svetlana, last year's rooted cutting from a propagator in Canada, and it totally surprised me by leafing out and forming little buds all along its stem, all in just one week! Svetlana berries supposedly have a good taste and this week's experiment shows it is indeed very fast growing. Bernis, MN
