The climbing honeysuckle

The term honeysuckle refers to the species of Halliana and Chinensis which are plants that are part of the Lonicera japonica and grow in Japan, China and Korea. Climbing honeysuckle is highly sought after because it is a luxuriant and robust climber that has the gift of twisting itself on a support and is equal to a liana with very rapid growth. It can reach four five meters in height and produces very fragrant flowers which in October reach the peak of beauty, also due to the emerald green color of the leaves. This beautiful and spontaneous ornamental plant is widely cultivated especially in villas and gardens where you want to make an ornamental decoration but not only on supports and trellises grids but also on trees with a not perfectly aesthetic trunk or on pergolas or arches that must embellish a entrance. Unfortunately, this plant cannot be combined with other plants because being so bursting, it risks suffocating any species of plant that comes close. The only way to keep him in the company of other plants is to plant low plants at his feet which can only serve as an additional ornament but must not climb. Such plants as clematis, and climbing hydrangeas, have a small development and will only decorate the base of the plant, without thereby endangering any dangers.


Cultivation

Nurseries sell seedlings in small pots. When we buy them, we must keep them in place if it is not the time to plant them in fact they must be placed in the garden or in larger pots, only from September to May. The soil must be well fertilized and rich in humus. Although the plant blooms abundantly in the presence of light, it prefers an area not too exposed to the sun, indeed, it suffers if it is too exposed to sunlight. Better if we place it in a place where the sun's rays arrive but at the same time the plant is cool. Before planting it in the garden, you have to dig a hole well free of stones and other pieces of material and possibly you should put a layer of manure on the bottom of the hole and if not possible, we put a layer of roasted cornunghia. Meanwhile, the plant must be placed for an hour in a bucket full of water so that its roots are moistened well. The hole, which must be 50 centimeters wide, must be covered with earth as soon as the honeysuckle it will be planted and then of gravel and expanded clay. Finally, the plant must be watered abundantly so that the roots take root in the soil.
