It's lovely when the hummingbirds come by. Yes, I cut it drastically. If you scroll back you can see how awful it got. This year it's resurrected! @cyndi @Mikekally

I have a honeysuckle that we've had for a very long time, it looks great in the spring nice and busy and blooms then goes to (bleep!) And gets aphid really bad so we are thinking of replacing it with a clematis!💘😍

columbiariver

Good plan. Be ready for mildew tho. This guy gets aphids late in summer when its so hot and dry out that I just don't care. I kind of let her go this year. But my new clematis vines did terrible with mildew. Going to hit them with the vodka I hear @ShelleySnyder

Lonicera Cilosa I believe, Terry. Purchase tag said 'orange honeysuckle', years ago. A beauty but it's been a project. Deck is about 15 ft up. I completely took this baby back to almost nothing but main wood last year. The base is bare until it hits the deck now. Starting to look like she's cared for. @moore.794

This one has not been invasive, just difficult. That's a shame. Is it everywhere now? @moore.794

She's growing beautifully after last year's severe pruning. But, the aphids are back again. I've planted a bronze fennel in planter below as I read here that they're a good #aphid deterrent. #aphidderrent we've had a good mild soapy water bath and a spray w the hose. Fingers crossed!

Before and after. I've been working hard today. Trying to save this orange honeysuckle. The aphids got to it. Then I burned it with neem oil. Never again will I use neem. Anyway, how's my trimming skills?

Looks good, never used neem oil but have it. So does it burn foliage? @columbiariver

Hi @leisel . I really burned it bad with neem. I will use soapy water next time. Maybe I didn't use it correctly. Idk.

You have to use neem when its not super sunny late afternoon does well. Mix it with some dish soap works well. If its to sunny it burns plants cus its a oil. Xoxo it came back beautifully tho.

comment
columbiariver

I've forgiven neem oil. As a matter of fact used it today on roses for mildew and some newly planted godetia and coleus babies were being eaten by something. I think I may have saved them. @cyndi

Lonicera Cilosa, honeysuckle, I believe. Was beautiful. #sickplant #help I used Neem Oil and burned the poor baby. It is about 12 feet tall. I almost want to trim it way back to maybe 6 feet. What do you think?
