Hi There--I planted a Honeysuckle in autumn 2010 to grow over a Arch. It made growth last year and again plenty stem and leave growth this year. Semi-shaded area. No sign of any flower as yet. Is this normal and does it flower on current year growth or previous? Help and advice much appreciated--Central Scotland location.



Hi Ian I have the same problem with my honeysuckle. Mine has been moved in the last 6 years and still not flowered . Leaves are always healthy but never a sign of flowers.

What is really frustrating is that, as I drive around, I see wild honeysuckle flowering its socks off. Could this suggest that it thrives best on poorer soil?

honey suckle seems to grow in hedges realy well but if you plant one/or more the roots want to be realy deep and a little bone meal with them try scattering a small ?fingertips full and water in every two weeks three times should improve matters bear in mind wild ones are usualy first to flower

Its different with my honeysuckle, this year it's been covered in flowers whereas the last two years, only a few....I had put it down to the amount of rain we've had this early summer, I do know they enjoy a good drink.

We have honeysuckle growing on a tree in our horse field and flowering its socks off. Its an old slightly rotten tree but there must be very little for the roots to be growing in just general debris were the branches have fallen
