Default Re: Helens hybrid - will it fruit in a heated polytunnel?

Haha, yeah I figured 5 C, just from the limited number of plants I have cut back, I would say it will still grow too tall during the growing season. My Velutina get cut back to about 2 feet and they are touching the ceiling of my house by spring. Best way to stunt it would probably be to grow in a container. For example I have zebrina that get no taller than 4 feet in containers, but I know a guy that grows them in the ground in his barn where there is no die back., and they are humongous, like 12 feet. That or grow in a very large container and move outside in spring.
