    1. Happy to help, I’ll be ordering mine soon too!

      I think I’ll order a plant in a 3 litre pot for about £17 and then taking cuttings from them, I want several for my small food forest and for family/friend gifts. Starting from seed is fine though of course, in fact the seeds will be a lot like their parents with Aronia.

      Propagation:
      Is very easy to propagate. Softwood or semi-softwood cuttings can be propagated with mist in July. Divisions from established plants can be
      made at a rate of as many as 25 per two year old plant. Stool beds are often used, and of course seeds that have been stratified.

      Products and Uses:
      Is used to produce syrup, juice, soft spreads, and tea. The tea is usually a blend with other more flavorful ingredients including blackcurrant. The berries are also used to make food coloring.

      Sounds like it would be a great smoothie ingredient!

      Good luck with your plants mate!
