I would have thought so if you train it and tie it in and snip off the unwanted bits. Some honeysuckles would be too vigorous.

HELLO FORKERS!

Been busy, social life and gardening until the huge storms yesterday. Garden looks somewhat battered.

I would nip them off.

If it's not a virus, then it could be as OL says, lack of regular watering. Roses in pots need an amazing amount of water. I have a lot and when underwatered the flowers are small.

It is probably "Herb Robert" a wild geranium. Has it a strong smell? It is difficult to get rid of and readily seeds itself. Fairly resistant to glyphosate, I've found. You will have to be persistent, weeding and spraying.

Have a look at Lonicera Heckrottii , a honeysuckle with fragrant flowers that isn't as big as some and would grow in a large pot. Will need some pruning and tying in position. Honeysuckles are woodland plants so don't mind some shade.

So long as you see a doctor, hurting and smelling sounds like an infection to me, as I said before. Don't try to pull it out, no matter how mad it drives you. There is a little blown up ball thing at the end to stop it falling out, air will have to be let out first to deflate it before gently easing it out. I have removed many in the past.

I think Monty is doing a good job, but he looks a bit tired. Prefer him at Chelsea to GW. Alan T has been on TV showing his own show garden, liked him too. I like Nikki Chapman, she's human, sympathetic and funny and quite attractive. Why do women presenters have to be "eye candy" ? She's a TV presenter, you don't need big gardening knowledge to present Chelsea and there is a mixture of presenters anyway, some of whom are gardening experts.
