Hi Herby try this for help from RHS http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/Profile.aspx?pid=728   Honey berry are good for people who struggle with blueberries, you need more than one for good fruiting, it is in fact an edible Honeysuckle, being a new type of plant in this country there's not too much known as they come from the Siberian areas, my local G/C assures me this is the most popular fruit seller plant of the year good luck

Artjak  iv researched triple glazing against Gas double glazing and the difference in price is not a good deal, the heat it saves is balanced out with the loss of solar heat it stops entering the house due to being a little darker,the end result Triple almost twice the price for no advantage over gas double glazing . im waiting for a friend to email me on boiler deals he uses on his properties he might be able to help with advice if he calls i,ll let you know

YEP, that's the best info ,note the restriction of the roots mind , and the new  root bags are just the job and not expensive if you want plenty of fruit later, i feed on Fish blood and bone, and when near to fruiting a good dollop of Potash to encourage the fruiting, and dont forget like Dovefromabove they do like a drink.
