Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
My Honeysuckle for the 2nd year has developed something nasty. Whilst growing nicely emerging flowers have gone black. Last year I removed all the offending pieces gave it a spray and it bounced back, but here it is again. Of course it is larger now and if it is carrying something in the root I feel I should cut it down to the base, treat it and let it come again. Could I do this now? I have trimmed it because it looked dreadful, but something more is needed. I have not sprayed because I do not think this will cure a long term rooted problem.
I do not know which variety it is but bears lovely Orange blooms and has a gorgeous smell.
