    Squirt them off with a good spray of water from a hosepipe  ... 
    you’ll probably need to go it a few times but it’ll  sort it out much more cheaply and much better for the environment ... and you won’t be harming the
    little predators like lace wings, hoverflies and ladybirds that'll help you deal with the aphids.

    A few buckets of water twice a week at the roots won’t come amiss either .., many honeysuckles are suffering a bit from the very dry soil, and that’s when they’re susceptible to Powdery Mildew ... the yellowing leaves on yours might be a sign of that .... generous watering from now until mid september will help to avoid that problem. 😊
