Plant Honeysuckle in spring after the danger of frost has passed in a full sun to partially shaded location in well draining soil. Soil preparation: Amend soil with compost to aid in drainage and to give the vine some nutrition to help with root development. Planting: Dig a hole in a well-draining location. Place vine in hole so that the root ball is level within the bed. Cover with soil and tamp down to remove air pockets. Watering: Water thoroughly at planting. While actively growing, water frequently and thoroughly so that water will reach the roots. Mulching: Mulch to keep the soil cool and to prevent the soil from drying out.
Honeysuckle blooms on the previous year's growth so you can leave it be or trim back.
