Is there a systemic aphid control product available in Canada? Better yet, a natural solution (other than spraying the plant with water) would be great. My affected plant is a honeysuckle.
I like neem oil for treating aphids. These articles will help you:
Well believe it or not, Lady bugs are really good for aphid control, their main diet is aphids, lol. You can get lady bugs now online I believe or find out where in your town. I have also used a light soapy water solution to spray on the affected plants as well. You can just use two to three drops of your dish liquid in a bottle of water, small spray bottle. Hope this helps.
My honeysuckle vine is not doing so well. I have it planted in full sun, but the leaves are turning yellow and the stems are darkening. I keep it watered just enough to keep it moist. HELP!
How often are you watering it? You may want to water it daily for a week or so to help it get established and a light fertilizer will help as well. There may also be air pockets in the planting hole, so step firmly around the base of the plant to collapse any pockets that might be in the soil.
My honeysuckle is not flowering. Any ideas?
Generally, a lack of phosphorus leads to non-blooming issues in maost plants. I would have the soil tested to see what exactly is missing, and in the meantime, it wouldn't hurt to add a little phosphorus, like bone meal, to the soil around your vine.
I planted a new honeysuckle plant in the same spot as the old one that died last year for reasons unknown. It was against my better judgement to plant in the same spot, but husband over-ruled. Now on the leaves of the new one there is a white spotty film before they turn yellow and fall off. There is new growth and it has climbed on the trellis. Please advise.
Your honeysuckle could be suffering from powdery mildew, caused by a fungus. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/powdery-mildew-homemade-and-organic-remedies.htm
I planted a honeysuckle on a fence, exposed to full sun. It is growing vigorously; however, the flowers are very small and have no scent. I fertilized it this spring with Miracle Gro but still don't see any change. Is this typical of certain varieties of honeysuckle?
It may just be in need of some phosphorus, which helps most plants with blooming. Bone meal is a good way to add phosphorus to the soil. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
Had a beautiful honeysuckle that died. When I pulled up the dead plant, there were hundreds of earwigs. Could the earwigs have killed this plant?

Here is some information about problems with honeysuckle:
I have two honeysuckle vines in a somewhat shady area. They bloom well in spring/early summer but late summer the leaves yellow quite a bit and drop off or else develop a type of rust on them. I live in mid-Indiana.
It may be a bit too shady and possibly a bit too damp in the area they are growing. In spring, the trees have not filled in all the way, so they get just enough light to bloom, but as summer progresses and the shade gets thicker as the trees fill out, they get a tad too little light. You might try selectivly pruning the surrounding trees to thin them out a bit and let a little more light through.
