High bush cranberry cultivation

I visited a gentleman in Palmer last week who has been busy cultivating our wild high bush cranberry, Viburnum edule. The DOT widened the road in front of his house and he rescued quite a few high bush cranberry plants before they were inundated with gravel. He held them in cold frames of potting mix for one winter and planted them out beginning in June 2016. Even in the raised beds, they had begun to spread, and they were well established by September. No doubt about it, south central Alaska is a great place to grow high bush cranberry, and they transplant very well.  Can’t wait for the updates on productivity and to try the wine he wants to make!!!
