@awomanonabike you weren’t wrong! For just a few flowers it smelled incredible! Wish I’d put it nearer the house now 😂

@sabbanrula thanks Rula ☺️ I have others that refuse to flower even after 3 years so I’m really pleased this one made an effort 😂

Maybe the others will be jealous for all the attention this one is getting and make an effort too 🤣

@ublaszko it is 😛 they were cheap and the other honeysuckles I have don’t seem to be growing particularly fast since I chopped them back 🙈

😂😂 I'm thinking of getting this one for a slightly shaded side of the garden. My Dutch one is not flowering this year 😕 One more year I think 😥

I was hoping I'd get flowers this year but no sign of flowerbuds so far. Will have to wait another year 😥

@ublaszko will be worth the wait though. My neighbour has one and the scent wafts over my fence 😍

@ublaszko I love that you and your parents have the same plants 🥰

I'm copying them 😁😁 They have so many gorgeous plants and it's quite a traditional garden but I'm going for even more traditional/cottage garden.

@ublaszko cottage gardens are just beautiful!

I love them although the downside is that cottage gardens tend to be herbaceous plus box balls/hedges. So I guess my garden is a modern cottage garden because of all the evergreen plants. 😊
