Brian Minter: Berry and Nut Plants Can Decorate Your Garden
Brian Minter: Amazing berry and nut plants will make a uniquely wonderful addition to your garden
Honeyberries are making a big difference in world gardening.
One of the biggest advantages we get by growing multiple fruits at our home is that we get a diversity of flavors in considerably small amounts and small spaces. Of course, we grow in accordance with our choice, but in choosing, it is advisable to try both newer and older verities. One of the reasons for not trying them might be little or even no knowledge about these rare verities.
Canterbury offers a great example in this context. The most common perception built about them is that they are bog plants and can be grown on a large scale. There are certain plants like blueberries, huckleberries, and lingonberries, which produce largely tasty fruits and can prove tasty additions to your garden. In addition to it, they can also be beneficial as a crossover.
Hardy to zone five, these small-leafed, low-growing evergreens become richly green in spring and summer that adopt the form of beautiful burgundy during winter and fall. Hundreds of beautiful white flowers that give shelter to small plants in April and May, turn first into large green berries and then gradually become mature dark, burgundy red fruits in fall.

Cranberry is initially bitter until late frost increases bricks of sugar which makes them pleasantly sweet and enjoyable to eat. When it becomes fully ripe in its season, it is a very sweetening moment to pick fresh fruits from the trees to eat and make a tasty traditional cranberry sauce. By the end of winter, it also produces food for birds.
Haskaps which is also known as honeyberries is making huge improvements and differences in the world of gardens. Native to Siberia and Japan, it is rated as zone two. It has no equal among the berries when it comes to hardness. Perhaps this is the reason why it is easy to grow it at home. It is a member of the honeysuckle family, they are one of the earliest fruits in the world. They often ripen in the month of June. For its pollinations, two different verities are needed, and to solve this issue, some growers adopt the approach of planting two or more verities together in one container.
Most haskaps have similar flavors and are the size of a blueberry. They are really popular for protection and also for cooking and baking. When I was to a group of people in the Selkirk Valley, a local grower told me they sold their entire crop for making liquors to an Okanagan Winery.
Mulberries are also increasingly becoming famous in the past few years. These plants are native to the Middle East and Asia. The black Mulberry and blackberries fruits have similar flavors. The only difference is black mulberry size is a bit longer and thinner than blackberry. It can be hard to find mulberry but it is clean and lovely to have it at your home to add to the elegance of your garden.
