Fresh shoots on one of my honeysuckles. I've planted it at the base of a laburnum, hoping it will tangle it's way up the trunk 🤓

That will look fab Richard. Hoping my laburnum will survive it's a beauty when in flower but it leans over quite a lot and has some holes appearing in the bark. Not sure what to do as not up on these things 😢😢

@fuschia Holes from insect damage or holes because it's under stress from being top heavy/pulled over??

I'm introducing a new honeysuckle into the garden - Dropmore Scarlet. It has trumpet shaped orange-red flowers in late summer 😁

@elflin thanks Val! 😊 yes I think you can still get it but it was a bit of a trek! I'd been looking for it in garden centres for ages but no one seemed to stock it. Then by luck I found it when I went to Wisley last month. Checked online and it seems available, so you may be lucky if you want to try on the web.
