How do I plant Lonicera Nitida?
I live in Rochdale, Lancashire and have recently re-claimed some land behind my home and wish to fence it in using Lonicera Nitida. The land is level, reasonably sheltered and is predominantly clay. I have already started to dig trenches, but am not sure how to best proceed. The following questions come to mind:
How deep should I actually dig the trenches?
What soil/earth mixture will maximise the shrubs’ chance of success?
Given that the trenches are clay-based, how should I best introduce drainage?
When should I actually plant the shrubs?
What additives (e.g. bonemeal) should be used to enhance growth and when should they be applied.
Anything else I haven’t thought about?
