Re: Wineberries

There are two red flags at the start here: "invasive" and "Asian." Under no circumstances-- delicious fruit or not-- should you propagate and spread an alien invasive. Read "Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants" by Douglas W. Tallamy (Timber Press, 2007) to understand how an alien species undermines an entire ecosystem and becomes a biological desert in supporting native species. EVERY GARDENER SHOULD READ AND UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLES EXPLAINED IN THIS BOOK! Stop the wanton/ignorant destruction of perfectly tuned ecosystems that have taken thousands or millions of years to co-evolve in balance.
