No cottage garden is complete without the quintessential climbing honeysuckle! Lonicera periclymenum 'Fragrant Cloud' is a choice cultivar with plenty of flower and fragrance for both gardeners and visiting wildlife. Deep pink, spidery blooms with contrasting beige interiors are borne in profusion from June to September, with a scent that is simply heavenly. The fading flowers are replaced by shiny, plump red berries which are loved by birds. Grow this deciduous climber over pergolas, against walls and fences or twining among trees and shrubs. Height: 7m (22'). Spread: 1.5m (5').

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: harmful if eaten.
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.
