Growing and Maintenance Tips

Climbing Honeysuckle is an easy to grow adaptable climber. Give it average well drained soil in sun and it will do well. Keep the plants well watered and mulched with bark mulch to keep the soil consistently moist and to keep weeds away. Add a layer of compost and an organic plant food for fertilizer each spring.
