Why We Love It

Often smelt before it’s seen, honeysuckle is a fragrant climbing plant suited to dreamy cottage gardens, sensory borders and wild havens.

Divine during the day, the heady scent is stronger at night.

Lonicera × americana a deciduous honeysuckle with firework-like flowers that open white and turn yellow and pink.

In autumn, the blooms give way to red berries.

Let it loose to ramble alongside a rose, or train it up an arbour for full-on romance.

How to Plant

Plant your honeysuckle in the ground.

Into the Ground

  1. Choose a spot in dappled shade and dig a hole big enough for the root ball.
  2. Remove the plant from its pot and pop it in the ground.
  3. Backfill the hole and firm it in.
  4. Give your plant a good water to help it get settled in.
  5. As it grows, gently tie the stems to a support to give it shape.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a pot that’s twice the size of the rootball.
  2. Ensure it has plenty of drainage holes.
  3. Fill with good quality compost.
  4. Make a hole slightly bigger than the rootball.
  5. Place the plant into the hole at soil level.
  6. Firm in and water well.
  7. Provide supports to help plants climb.
