Lonicera Mint Crisp Honeysuckle


Hello everybody it’s nice to see everybody’s garden coming to life.
I have just bought this honeysuckle. Has anybody got it in their garden? If so will I be able to grow it in a large pot?

I haven't seen that one, though I have a tricolour one which I have never seen flower yet. Planted in the wrong place and had to be moved, now it's romping away. On planting it in a pot, depends on how high it's going to get, whether it's going to be trained up a wall or pyramid, someone on here will advise. Is it scented too?

They are not too happy being potted, probably wont see its full potential unless it has the space.Looks very attractive.

Thank you for your replies. I have found a place in the ground to plant it when we return from a short trip to the IOW.

Have one planted in the ground Margories but have never tried planting it in a pot, they seem very easy to grow I love mine.
Enjoy your trip.

I have two of these Marjorie. The first started life in a big pot , but grew so quickly that I had to find a spot in the garden for it. Its romping away now !
