Delavay Honeysuckle | Lonicera similis var. delavayi | 3L Pot

Easy to grow, and more resistant to mildew than other Lonicera varieties, this Delavay Honeysuckle will make an unfailing focal point in your garden. From June to September, it becomes laden with cream trumpet-shaped blooms, which release a divinely sweet fragrance. This scent only intensifies as night draws in; a feature that Honeysuckle is very much known for, and some of the most prestigious perfumes have tried to emulate this sensuous transition. As each flower matures, they will gradually turn gold too, making your landscape only more beautiful as the weeks pass!

How Your Plant Will Arrive Planting Requirements Planting Guide

As we recommend with all plants, you should regularly water your Honeysuckle once planted, ideally for the next few months.

When planting, dig a hole twice the circumference of the pot. Ensure that the pot sits roughly level with the soil, with the graft point above the soil. Fill the remaining space with a mix of compost and garden soil. Make sure that you firm down the soil, but not so you are compressing it down.

Lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, your climbing plant will be delivered right to your doorstep. This approach means that you will receive nursery fresh plants that were on the growing table one day, and at your door the following! Our expert nursery have spent decades perfecting the art of watering, feeding, and pruning climbing plants and will do so until hours before they are packed.

Each plant has been grown on a cane and is later expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box. They will then be sent via a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

Honeysuckle plants are perfect for the beginner grower. Their growth and output will likely be excellent providing you follow our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common query topics:

  • Hardiness: Honeysuckle can be found growing throughout temperate regions, and will therefore be hardy in the UK climate.
  • Position: Honeysuckle prefers full sun but will suffice in partial shade.
  • Soil: Soil types can be an unwelcome confusion as many plants will adapt to their conditions. Nonetheless, less than ideal conditions will certainly limit your plant’s growth. Waterlogged soils will starve it of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis; causing its roots to rot and creating an optimal environment for disease.
  • Pots: Opt for a pot that is around 50cm deep, and be sure to apply mulch. When the weather warms up, make sure that you water your Honeysuckle on a regular basis.

Advice on hot and droopy plants

If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.

Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
