These plants have a climber development; to let them grow at their best, let's place them near a grate or a wall. Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight.We suggest growing the the Lonicera outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.
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.
The Lonicera needs to be watered quite frequently, every 2-3 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 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.
