Growing kiwi and grapes at 8,600 feet without a green house? How about sea buckthorn, lingonberry, or plums? You didn’t think that is possible? When I moved up here the feedback I received from people was that growing anything was very limited, if at all possible. The very stubborn homestead woman in me decided to investigate for myself and over the past 5 years I planted an orchard, nut trees, bushes, shrubs, and other perennials that offer me an increasing amount of fruit, berries, and other edible plants. This post is about cold-hardy fruit trees, cold hardy berry bushes, and cold-hardy vines suitable for a short growing season.
