My Honeysuckle


By aygo


After my usual morning perusal of the garden I noticed the Honeysuckle I planted last year has its first bud.

Yes that's very true, I had this Serotina variety in my last place, gives a wonderful show and smell and strategically placed it next to the gate coming into the back of the house so I can enjoy it.

I'm so envious. I planted a honeysuckle three years ago. Every spring it it looks green and healthy with a lot of leaves, then it gets a fungus, the leaves start to go brown and fall. It doesn't flower. Have you any ideas what I can do. I'm thinking of taking it out.

That's awful Val, I did have a honeysuckle once that did that, turned out it was some sort of larva that was feeding on the root system, although it was vigorous it just made it weak and prone to all sorts. I always have honeysuckles planted next to something that continuously shades the rootbal...l about a foot high off the rootball, but making sure that the stems are in full light, plenty of water too. Maybe it's time to take a cutting from yours, i've taken two already from my Serotina and theyre coming well. Have a look online at your variety of Honeysuckle.

The purple buds are quite pretty aren't they?
