bare honeysuckle- is it dead?

Posted: 20/05/2016 at 18:35


honeysuckles do sulk a little after my experience anyway. 

Why do you think it was "diseased"?  

I have a pair of different honeysuckles over an arch and earlier this year pruned both very hard.  Had little time over last 2 years to prune them.  They were slow but now growth is good.

do the remaining branches look dead, twiggy, brittle? 

Give it a couple of weeks ...the recent rain will help as will the increased recent warmth.

That's ok Philippa.

for me planting now helps planting depth and you can see how it will look in relationship to other stuff there.
