I planted a honeysuckle last year in a container pot. It has done really well but now I have noticed the centre leaves have gone dry and brown and yet the outside leaves are really healthy and are climbing well. Could you let me know what is going wrong, thank you.



Honeysuckle does have a habit of parts of it dying off, often making a thick thatch of dead material in the centre or underneath with fresh live growth nearer the outside edge, but I wouldn't have expected that so soon, as you say you only planted it last year. Might be that part of it got killed off in the winter, if you can see no signs of disease or infestation.
