Riverbend Orchards is proud to be a licensed propagator of the haskap (honeyberry) cultivars originating from the University of Saskatchewan.
We have developed an efficient system for the propagation of small fruit plants. Riverbend’s haskap plants are propagated by collecting softwood cuttings from young vigorous bushes growing in our fields. Rooting of cuttings is done under greenhouse mist in customized Ellepots resulting in a finished plug by late summer.
Our rooted cuttings in Ellepots are grown on into larger 2 year-old plants in 1 gallon nursery containers. These quality plants have 10x the root mass of an Ellepot and establish more quickly in field plantings. Our container-grown plants have excellent vigour and survival and have received rave reviews from producers across Canada and the United States.
