How to look after my potted honey suckle over the winter

Hi Suzie

Serotina is a lovely honeysuckle   it won't need watering over the winter - when you wrap the pot just make sure you don't cover the top of the pot so that any rain etc will water it, and raise the pot onto bricks to ensure that it drains well. 

The honeysuckle roots won't be troubled by the frost, but it's good to wrap the pot as many are damaged by being frozen.

acupuncture

I know some people, including my father, who have received a great deal of relief from acupuncture.  I know others who have not found it helpful.  However, the same can be said for other forms of medicine and treatments too.
