Honeysuckle 'Firecracker'

Quickly cover dull garden fences, walls and sheds with beautiful, scented honeysuckle.

Honeysuckle 'Firecracker' is a fully hardy climber, producing nectar-rich flowers during summer. Unlike many ordinary varieties, it's not prone to mildew, and has uniquely collared flower heads.

Height: 2m, Spread: 2m, Flowering period: May-June, Position: full sun or partial shade.

Growing Info Tab

Pot up lonicera plants and grow them on until large enough to plant out in their final positions. When they are well grown, gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Plant honeysuckle against a suitable, sturdy support such as trellis or strong wires attached to walls and pergolas, in fertile, moist, free draining soil. Poor soils can be improved by adding plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. Choose a position in sun or semi-shade. When growing honeysuckle in patio containers, use soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.

More Info Tab

Feed and water lonicera regularly throughout the growing season until they are fully established. Check young shoot tips regularly as honeysuckle plants are susceptible to aphid damage, particularly when grown in full sun. Prune immediately after flowering, first removing the oldest stems, then reducing the remaining stems to restrict their vigorous growth to the available space. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant in spring. Caution: Berries are harmful if eaten.
