Honeysuckle x tellmanniana Lonicera
I bought a this Honeysuckle from a garden centre on June 12th this year. When we brought it home it was approx: 3ft, now it is already 3 metres in height and it keeps growing The only problem is it has run out of trellis and I am unable to fix up any more any time soon. My father fixed the first piece of trellis, a really strong good quality piece 2 metres X 1 metre (drilled to the brick wall) but as he had recently become poorly I cannot ask him. I want this Honeysuckle to continue growing and so I am wondering what is the easiest support idea for it? I am thinking wire trellis and finding someone to fix that up. It will be a ladder job! Also it is looking so healthy and the foliage is dark green and glossy...but it has not flowered yet and we are almost out of July. Do you think it will flower this year? Some of my other plants have been late, as they were last year ,so I am not overly worried as I know they are all healthy and the growth proves that. I love the way it has weaved perfectly in and out of the timber trellis Lastly I keep reading different advice on the maximum height this species grows to. Some say 5 metres, some say 10 and some say more! Any help would be so appreciated.
