Space plants with regard to ultimate spread of the species or cultivar you’ve chosen. Honeysuckle is widely tolerant of soil types and locations, but prefers a well-drained loam. Flower production will be most profuse in full sun.
Easy to grow, honeysuckle requires little attention except to restrain spread of some vining types which can be too aggressive. Prune shrubby varieties hard after flowering, removing a third of wood to ground level each year. A light application of a balanced fertilizer each spring is beneficial.
