I live in Penzance. Part of my Lonicera Natida hedge has started to adopt a more autumn colour range. With what & when do I feed it



My first thought is -has the weather been very dry down there? Make sure it's well watered, and check that there isn't any insect infestation.

Feeding anything at this time of year isn't a very good idea, because any new growth would be 'caught' and damaged by the first frosts.

The change in colour sounds okay and I would mulch and feed in the spring

How do I say thanks?
