Planting and flowering details
Show moreMake sure the root ball of the Honeysuckle is well-moistened by soaking it in a bucket full of lukewarm water overnight. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile, humus-rich soil and plant the root ball at the appropriate depth in the hole. The soil can be improved by adding some compost and garden manure. Place this plant in full or partial sunshine. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.
The Honeysuckle is a climbing plantThe Honeysuckle has smooth branches that hang freely from the plant. This climber naturally grows in the forest and uses trees and bushes as climbing aids. A smooth wall is not ideal for this plant as they are not self-clinging, therefore will require the support of a trellis or fence. This plant can be combined with Lathyrus Latifolius and Clematis.
Show moreThe Honeysuckle grows with its 'head' facing the sun. For a good growth, it's best if its roots stay cool. Give it extra water during dry periods to prevent the soil from drying out. Provide it with a layer of mulch of garden compost and manure during the winter. After flowering, slightly trim it, strong pruning is not well-tolerated as this can result in the loss of flowers. In March if overgrown, thin out by cutting back the side shoots to 4 bud eyes or 15 cm, this will encourage the growth of new shoots.
