My lovely large flowered honeysuckle seems to have succumbed to some  sort of disease. The leaves have suddenly that black/brown spots and the. They shrivel and die. Is it terminal? Would I prune off affected shoots?

Do the brown/back spots have yellow rings around them?

I had a honeysuckle where the leaves went brown - it actually needed feeding, as the compost was poor and I bought it rootbound - do a google image search for plant diseases and see if it matches. If it doesn't, it might be something cultural like food, or shade that it needs.

looks like it is some kind of leaf blight judging from internet searches. This plant has been fantastic for the last 5 years or more so it will be a real shame if it is turning up it's toes.
