I only mulch with grass cuttings. I have always had fruits but they where on the small side. 5 years ago I bought a new plant. No idea what origin but blooms 2 weeks later en does not grow that high only 1 meter, as the other haskaps grow easily 2 meter. Since then the harvest is steadily increasing as is fruit-size. For me its a good early fruit crop , starting early May, with more aroma then sugar. Very few diseases but droughts are not always endured.

The plants don't drop as many leaves as in the pics above, but they do suffer quite a bit once we get to the 80F and higher temperatures which around here has been in early June. With the shift in climate it seems we get a short spring with many cold snaps and lots of rain, then a quick jump to hotter summer temps that stick around right through August.
