Can anyone give me some quick tips on planting honeysuckle vines? Thank you.
Same as other shrubs: Suitable exposure and soil, wide shallow holes with same soil that came out of hole going back in - without amendments (sand, bark, peat...). Mulch after planting and water well. If roots circling inside pot pull open and spread out in hole before filling.
If soil test shows need for fertilizer do that also.
Thanks so much. The dirt here is actually clay but there seem to be lots of other honeysuckle around us in the wooded areas and in the fields. They must like something about the Ozarks. I appreciate your help.
Japanese honeysuckle is a pest in eastern North America, as are some shrubby species. The ones you are seeing around you may be one of these. You certainly wouldn't want to plant more of same.
