Hi Becky. Are you sure its dead? We are three weeks behind this year. I was about to rip mine out the other day and then noticed its still green when I scraped a little bit of the bark back
Hi Becky, Sam's right, don't give up on it yet.
Lots of things don't need cutting back. Honeysuckle needs a trim up sometimes and you can cut it back but you don't have to.
Ahh, I have some growing wild in the wood next to me which has creeped over but the one in the garden was going to get the heave ho but left it after further investigation
Same here Becky P. I cut my honeysuckle back and after the frost and snow over this last few weeks i also think mine is dead I had a look today and didnt notice any green buds etc. I only put ot in because I though it would be really hardy.
I'd better look at mine tomorrow. I thought they were totally hardy
I had one that I tore out of the ground as it was still attached to the meshing that I had it climbing up, it spent the winter in behind the greenhouse, dangling in the air, rootball and all.
I went to dispose of it a couple of weeks ago and it was covered in buds, it is now back in the ground and growing well.
I'd scrape a little bit of bark and check before you toss it.
Far too early to be calling anything dead. Good job you spotted it in time Steve
Thats good to hear Steve - I wont touch mine and give them a chance to recover. Hope they survive!
