Q.Potted Honeysuckle That Bloomed Once This Year Then Produced Buds That Just Dried Up. What To Do Now?

Zone 98225 | rkaiser.inbox added on July 9, 2020 | Answered

The plant is two years old. It grew beautifully all last summer. It was covered over the mild winter. I modestly pruned it in the spring. It bloomed beautifully at the beginning of the summer and the blossoms fell off as usual and new ones started to shoot out but then they all just dried as little stiff blossoms.

I would give it a light pruning and see if it doesn't revitalize. You can also add some compost on top of the soil around the plant or a well balanced fertilizer. When in a container, nutrients leach out quickly. This winter you can prune it according to the instructions below.
