Zone 6a - OH - Spring Haskap Blossoms

Berry Smart Blue surrounded by 3 Borealis planted in 2012
All four (3 Borealis, 1 Berry Smart Blue in middle) blooming very nicely and I have hopes for a good crop. However, we are in central Ohio where our weather is very unpredictable. We had high winds of 60 mph all day yesterday so it was impossible to get a cover to stay on the bushes, I just hoped for the best. The winds finally died down early morning and then the frost, fortunately it was not too heavy. I plan on putting bird netting over them too this year when the berries start to ripen so I’ll have some berries for myself.
