are my training wires too thin?

Hi all,


I've started grown my first climber. Lonicera japonica. I've used pretty standard plastic coated garden wires simply because theyre barely visible. Should I have used proper heavy duty stuff? Have I made a mistake? The plant has twined its way tighly up the wires so it's too late I think...

    also, was japanese honeysuckle a decent choice? In america its invasive apparently, but our climate is different here so I heard its fine, opinions welcome.

     I think your wires may be a little thin.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    lots of things in " america" (I presume you mean USA,) are considered invasive. Religious and random hate filled bigotry being primary among them.

    "America" covers two continents. 

    I can't imagine what troubles people in Alaska is the same for those in Chile or Argentina.
