Honeysuckle Blossoms Dried Up Before Blooming

Question From: Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: All the blossoms on our honeysuckle vine have dried and did not bloom. The blossoms crumble when touched. Vine was loaded with blossoms and I expected a beautiful vine but the blooms all crumbled. What could be the problem?

A: A sudden and excessive heat water coupled with drought will destroy the blossoms on most plants. It's the plants method of conserving moisture and energy. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
