Over the winter months you can prepare your honeysuckle for new growth and new flowers in the coming spring.
First prune removing all the dead diseased and damaged stems cut back some of the new shoots that were created in last years growing season.
Once all the leaves have fallen off in December or January it’s also a good idea to give the plant and winter wash to remove all the overwintering pests and diseases.
Finally in the early spring provide the honeysuckle with a couple of handfuls of Growmore fertiliser just to ensure some strong new growth and new flowers which in most cases will be formed on the new season growth.
