Im looking for a honeysuckle that can grow in a shady spot any suggestions?
All climbing honeysuckles are happy in the shade as they are naturally woodland plants - they do like the opportunity to get their tops in a bit of sunshine for part of th day, but their roots are best in the shade.
Some ideas here - my favourite is Graham Thomas
Thanks alot for the info, never grown honeysuckle before as I was told they needed alot of care, will they do well in a pot? and any care suggestions
how can Itake cuttings from honeysuckle
Honeysuckle likes a cool deep rootrun, so probably not at it's happiest in a pot - I've not grown it in one and don't think I'd try it.
Lots of info here http://www.gardenersworld.com/blogs/plants/growing-honeysuckle/3507.html
and information on propogation here http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?pid=439 I find layering the easiest way to go with honeysuckle.
