Q.Honeysuckle not doing well

Zone Essex United Kingdom | sheila51 added on June 27, 2017 | Answered

This Honeysuckle was looking great last year, but this year it has struggled to bloom and looks as if it could be dying? In this very hot weather spell I have watered my garden and plants about every 3 days – has that been often enough?

Newly-planted honeysuckle requires consistent watering, keeping the soil evenly moist until the plant starts growing vigorously on its own. Once established, water only during summer droughts of two weeks or more, giving the plant at least 1 inch of water a week. Place 2 inches of organic mulch around the base of the plant to reduce water evaporation from the soil.
