Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant away from a wall or fence line and angle the plant so the growth is climbing into the supports provided. Sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base of the planting hole and water well after planting.
Care Tips Cut back established plants after flowering if they outgrow the available space, removing up to a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring or autumn.
Flowering June - September
Vase Life Honeysuckles make lovely, trailing cut flowers. Sear the stem end in boiling water for 20 seconds, before (ideally) storing in deeper cold water for a couple of hours. Then arrange.
