Summer climber

A summer eye-catcher. The honeysuckle 'Dropmore Scarlet' (Lonicera brownii) is lovely on the fence. And it gives off a lovely fragrance. The orange-red coloured flowers attract bees and butterflies. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Help the Lonicera on its way by guiding it up a rack. Prune the honeysuckle regularly. Preferably in the spring. Then completely cut away the old and overgrown branches. Plant the climbing plant in the sun or partial shade. Water it more during dry periods.

Planting

Make sure the root ball of the Honeysuckle is well-moistened by soaking it in a bucket full of lukewarm water overnight. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile, humus-rich soil and plant the root ball at the appropriate depth in the hole. The soil can be improved by adding some compost and garden manure. Place this plant in full or partial sunshine. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.

The Honeysuckle is a climbing plant

The Honeysuckle has smooth branches that hang freely from the plant. This climber naturally grows in the forest and uses trees and bushes as climbing aids. A smooth wall is not ideal for this plant as they are not self-clinging, therefore will require the support of a trellis or fence. This plant can be combined with Lathyrus Latifolius and Clematis.

Care

The Honeysuckle grows with its 'head' facing the sun. For a good growth, it's best if its roots stay cool. Give it extra water during dry periods to prevent the soil from drying out. Provide it with a layer of mulch of garden compost and manure during the winter. After flowering, slightly trim it, strong pruning is not well-tolerated as this can result in the loss of flowers. In March if overgrown, thin out by cutting back the side shoots to 4 bud eyes or 15 cm, this will encourage the growth of new shoots.

Extra

You can still find wild Honeysuckles in forests. They are fragrant climbers that will thrive anywhere and grow very rapidly. The beautifully-shaped flowers spread a delicious scent, especially during the night! Red poisonous berries sometimes appear after the flowering period.
