As we recommend with all plants, it is key to regularly water newly planted plants in the months after planting.

Jasmine plants are extremely versatile and can even be grown as part of hedge or up a tree

When planting, dig a hole twice the circumference of the pot. Ensure the pot sits roughly level with the soil, with the graft point above the soil. Infill, the remaining space with a mix of compost and garden soil, but do not compress the soil.

In terms of care, watering is important especially during the summer months. They will need a thorough watering twice weekly during dry spells.

Honeysuckle plants are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:

  • Position: Honeysuckle prefer full sun but will suffice in partial shade.
  • Soil Types: soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Simply, avoid waterlogged soils and apply mulch to improve aeration.
  • Planting In Pots: choose a pot around 50cm deep and be sure to apply mulch. Ensure regular watering in the warmer months.
  • Hardiness: Honeysuckle can be found growing throughout temperate regions, and are well suited to the UK climate.
