Cultivation Advice.

Deciduous, sometimes evergreen, climbing honeysuckles (Lonicera) have thin, flexible stems that twine around their supports. Grow them up walls and fences, or over a pergola to scent the air near a seating area. Although they will flower better in a sunny place, a lightly shaded position will encourage a healthier, greener plant. Climbing honeysuckles will thrive on almost any soil type. Very wet or excessively dry soils are unsuitable. Strong sunlight can scorch the growth.

Well packaged, healthy plants

The plants I ordered came very securely packaged and were still moist. The plants were all thriving and in great condition. They have continued to look healthy despite the cooler weather setting in. Am looking forward to seeing them in full bloom next summer! I have purchased most of my clematis and honeysuckles from Thorncroft and have always received healthy happy plants.
