Honeysuckle problem.

Posted: 26/04/2013 at 17:50

I have two honeysuckle which are approximately five years old.  Neither has flowered. No idea why but the leaves cover the fence so is a good background for other plants.  Crossing my fingers that they will do better this year.  Also had a mock orange which was pretty poor but have repositioned it and it's doing very well in deed.  May need to reposition them.  Putting off doing it though as its a big job.  I suspect it needs doing. Any ideas when the best time would be for doing this.  

A bit of advice on a couple of plants

Euonymous is the first one.  Looks good if shaped into a little round shape but takes a while.  Trim lightly cutting off extra growing sprigs in spring or autumn.  Baggesen's Gold is the other.  It is a slow growing plant only needs very light pruning.  Both look good against a holly or any dark leaved plant.  Baggesen's Gold middle of border.   Euonymous front of border.
