pruning honeysuckle vine

Posted: 12/08/2014 at 17:34

It will grow back if you prune it. Cut it back to almost nothing and it will grow back. It will grow to the height it reaches naturally whatever you do. 

It won't flower through spring and all summer as well, you may get a second flush, but there isn't much that flowers all season.

Ivy, holly and cyclamen - everywhere!!!

they're only shallow corns, take a trowel and get them out.

Very light on wasps here as well. One nest, but well out of the way and the flight path doesn't include my kitchen.

Last year a nest in someone else's garden filled my house and garden with wasps.

Hi Ann, I'd store these cool and dry and sow them in spring. 

If you've got plenty you could try some now but then you'd have babies to get through the winter.

Mine (just one plant) are nowhere near ripe yet

The top one Fishy

It's not my photo, it's a google image. I couldn't find one in my album. If I were to label my photos it would help me find them.

The Small Copper is mine though.

Whew!

We have grasshoppers and more grasshoppers and even more grasshoppers.

Lots of uncut meadow here, that's where they are. None on the lawn or amongst flowers
