When to cut back honeysuckle?
Okay, my 2 honeysuckle plants were destroying my lattice, so I cut them way back fall '06, and I had to look at a bare lattice all winter, then they hardly bloomed at all last summer. Last fall, I started replacing the lattice w/ green wire, now, too much of my honeysuckle is sprawling along the ground. I was thinking of cutting most of both bushes back and trying again to retrain them up the wire. If I cut them back now, will they grow back up and bloom? I don't want to miss out on the blooms and I don't want to look at bare fencing all winter either. (The area is 3 sections of 4 x 8 wire in the back of my bulb garden.) Thanks, Brandy
