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
