It's a common honeysuckle I'm sure it's the same as mine 🙂

Thanks @greenfinger14 it's doing well at the moment but in a battle with my Russian vine for fence space. There can only be one winner, so the Russian vine will have to get the chop after it's flowered! 😕

Mine has succumbed to powdery mildew. I've sprayed it with milk and water like you recommended, fingers crossed.

@suzyw I haven't actually tried it but did pick that tip up from someone else on here. One of mine had mildew a few years ago. I tried a fungicidal spray, but it didn't do much, but it's thriving now & the mildew's not been back. Fingers crossed that the milk treatment works. Keep us posted on how it goes. Not sure if full fat or semi skimmed is best though! 😀

I'll let you know if it works. Just semi-skimmed I'm using at the moment ☺️
