Attracting gardeners climbing honeysuckle with its plasticity. By making timely trimming and garters of bushes, you can decorate with these vines a fence, gazebo, pergola or other garden structure.

Curly decorative honeysuckle will mask the unsightly wall of the structure: a barn, bathhouse or hide a cottage toilet under lianoid bushes. In general, the use of these vines in the garden is limited only by the imagination of its owner.

You won’t immediately understand which side of the vine has roots, and where is the top. This property of these plants is widely used in landscape design.

Species diversity

Currently, there are more than two hundred and fifty varieties and forms of climbing honeysuckle. In order to cover this diversity, you will need a thick illustrated guide. We will try to talk about some of the most popular representatives of this extensive line of plants.

Fragrant honeysuckle, or honeysuckle, lat. Lonicera caprifolium is a perennial deciduous vine that, with proper care, can grow up to six meters in length. This type of plant is the most popular in our gardens, it was with him that the fascination with the honeysuckle of decorative varieties among many gardeners began.

Over the season, this liana can give a two-meter growth and calmly entwine a pergola or rise high on the wall of a gazebo or a country house. Honeysuckle is frost-resistant, only the tips of the shoots are subject to freezing.

Oddly enough, a warm winter can harm this honeysuckle more cold. Frequent thaws cause swelling of the kidneys, which can die after frost. But even the honeysuckle that has frozen out under such conditions can regenerate from root buds that give offspring.

Honeysuckle blooms in early summer with bright colors for 15-20 days. The outer part of the buds is painted in orange-red tones and white-yellow inside.

But even after flowering, the curly honeysuckle of the honeysuckle type continues to delight with its decorative effect. At first, the greenish berries gradually turn red, and a pretty picturesque picture appears before our eyes.

German honeysuckle

Honeysuckle German, lat. Lonicera periclymenum, similar to the previous view, but differs in the color variety of buds: from white to purple. Flowering in this species is longer and sometimes lasts until the month of September. The fruits of the German honeysuckle are dark red in color.

Attention! Berries of decorative curly honeysuckle are inedible!

Brown Honeysuckle, lat. Lonicera brownie is distinguished by the carrot color of its buds, which appear twice a season: first in June-July, secondly in August. Preferring sunny areas without drafts, this species tolerates winters well, and if it freezes a little, it quickly recovers.

Brown Honeysuckle

This honeysuckle, lat. Lonicera henryi, refers to semi-evergreen species, that is, it does not completely drop its leaves for the winter, and some of them remain on the bush. She is significantly inferior to other forms in height, barely reaching two and a half meters. She has brown-red tubular buds that produce an amazing fragrance in mid-July. Black berries ripening by September are also decorative.

Breeding

Reproduction of decorative climbing honeysuckle is carried out mainly in two vegetative ways:

In order to get a seedling in the first way, in the early spring after snow melting and thawing of the soil, a well-developed branch at the bottom of the plant is selected and bent to the ground, then they are fastened with a wire clip or simply pressed with a piece of board or a stone. During the season, roots form in the place where the branches come into contact with the soil, after which the seedling can be separated and transplanted to a permanent place in the fall or spring of next year.

Cutting of honeysuckle is carried out in mid-July. At the same time, cuttings with two to three internodes are cut, leaving only a pair of upper leaves on them. Chubuki prepared in this way are planted in a greenhouse or cuticle.

Advice! The simplest cuticle is easy to make from your favorite plastic bottle, cutting off the bottom of it. Covering the handle with a “one and a half” without bottom, do not forget to unscrew the cork to let in air.

Planting curly honeysuckle and caring for it begin with the preparation of pits in a certain plan place. Depending on the type of plant, you need to choose a sunny or shaded place. In addition, you must immediately determine what the liana will rely on during its growing season.

The distance between plants depends on the varietal characteristics and the location in the garden: for a solid fence, planting is done tightly, for individual designs - more freely.

It is more convenient to cultivate climbing honeysuckle immediately with any support, this makes it easier to care for and pruning. Pits are made 50 to 50 centimeters in size and the same size in depth. They are half-filled with drainage and the nutrient mixture, after which seedlings are lowered into them and the remaining nutrient soil is added to the edge of the pit and irrigated.

Advice! After planting, be sure to mulch the root circle and tie a young vine to the support!

Care for climbing honeysuckle comes down to several agricultural activities:

Pruning honeysuckle is trimmed regularly. In the very early spring, sanitary cutting of vines is carried out with the removal of frozen and broken branches. Throughout the summer season, secateurs and clippers carry out plant formation according to the garden design plan. Together with pruning, garter honeysuckle climbing to the supports is made.

In the dry period, honeysuckle is rarely, but abundantly watered with mandatory mulching. A layer of nutritious mulch from manure, humus or compost, among other things, will provide the plants with all the necessary nutrients and prevent the development of weeds.

For a better recovery of plants after a through winter, a spring feeding is carried out with herbal tea mixed with chicken droppings and ash.
