If you propagate a plant by layering or cuttings, you get exactly the same plant, genetically. In the case of honeyberries/haskaps, you get the same old plant that was selected for its superior performance in Saskatchewan, Russia, or Japan. If your garden is in Saskatchewan, Russia, or Japan, this is good news.
When you grow from seed, you get different plants, hopefully a diverse assortment, from which you'll be able to select the plants that do best in your own garden.
