These plants have a climber development; to let them grow at their best, let's place them near a grate or a wall. the Lonicera should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.The the Lonicera should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.
For climber plants to develop without problems, letís act at the end of the winter, or in autumn, adding some manure, or a slow release fertilizer to the ground. In the spring, every 25-30 days, letís add some specific fertilizer for green or flowering plants to the irrigating water.
These plants are climbers, therefore they grow leaning against supports of all types. The Lonicera has a shrub- like development. The Lonicera Is medium in size; in summer it assumes a yellow colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
During this period of the year the the Lonicera needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; letís irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 1-2 buckets of water . These plants have a vigorous development; when the stem is wider it might need abundant watering during the long summer months.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Letís locate these climber plants in a slightly heavy soil with an average drainage.
