There used to be a hedge of cotoneasters here, at the north edge of the back garden. I took them out (I do like their fall colour but I have more elsewhere anyway), and replaced them with 5 fruiting bushes. In a few years, we'll have a little Upik in our own backyard!
The two shrubs you can see are my two new cherries, Crimson Passion (at the top) and Carmine Jewel (at the bottom). I had trouble deciding on the varieties, but decided on these two. I picked Crimson Passion for its large, sweet fruit and Carmine Jewel for its earlier, sweet fruit with a small pit. Both are classified as sour cherries but are sweet enough to eat out of hand. The shrubs are big enough I should get a few cherries next year. Can't wait!
I have also planted 2 haskap (honeyberry) bushes and 1 saskatoon. They are all seedlings so you can barely see them in this picture. If you look closely, you'll see the wire cages that I put around them so the kids and dog don't step on them. Fruit in maybe... 3 years? We'll see.
