honeysuckle pruning and moving

peteSpeteS Posts: 963

Is it possible to cut back honeysuckle. It's a plant I've had for about 20yrs but it has never been pruned and is looking a bit scruffy. I'd like to cut it back fairly hard and move it a metre or so to accommodate another plant, but I was wondering how much of the roots in such an old plant would be needed to be retained to successfully move it.


  • you can take honeysuckle to knee high and it'll come back rampant next year, when moving it try and get as big of a root ball as possible.
