Honeysuckle Had Lots Of Buds That Did Not Open

Question From: Brackley, , United Kingdom
Q: My honeysuckle last year had loads of bloom but they did not open, why is this and do I need to be something I am missing? Thank you

A: My guess, and it is a guess, is that you have aphids. Take a cutting or two in a plastic bag to your local nursery that sells these plants for a more accurate ID and recommendation of action. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
