honeysuckle

firstlady1 added on June 24, 2012 | Answered

My honeysuckle was grown very nicely, it was put in the garden last year. We cut it back a little in the winter. But now we have only a few tiny white and yellow flowers and some of the leaves are dying off in the middle, but seem quite strong and growing at the top. Should we cut it back now? Thank you.

I would leave it for now. It may have a fungus that is causing the lower growth to die back or the lower growth may not be able to get enough light, if the top growth is heavy. Try treating it with a fungicide first and see if that does not improve the growth on the bottom half of the plant.
