Growing Princess Kate Honeysuckle

Great for any number of situations, scrambling over low walls, over arches and pergolas or into trees. It associates very well with other honeysuckles and climbing roses or can be planted with a clematis scrambling together over a fence or tree stump. It is essentially a woodland and cottage garden plant suiting informal planting schemes.

Planting and Care Instructions

How to grow Lonicera Princess Kate:

Best planted where the roots have a shady run although it will be happy in any situation and with any soil pH.

  • It is quite loose and spreading in habit so choose a spot where it has room to expand.
  • Plant it in a hole larger than the rootball.
  • Backfill with good quality compost, having incorporated a handful of bonemeal.
  • Firm in well and water.
  • Prune by 1/3rd after flowering and remove any untidy growth.

Look out for:

May be susceptible to mildew and aphids but it rarely causes a severe problem. Because of the plants attraction for insects and bees it is inadvisable to use chemical sprays.
