Curly honeysuckle and its reproduction

Curly honeysuckle - an extremely valuable species from a decorative point of view, which is highly valued by gardeners both for its spectacular appearance and for being undemanding to conditions of detention. It doesn't even need to be watered often: A small amount of water will suffice during dry summer months. However, it will gratefully accept the most insignificant fertilizing, whether it be autumn mulching with rotted manure or fertilization with phosphorus-potassium mixtures during flowering.

Curly honeysuckle most easily propagated by layering. To acquire a beautiful green wall, you should dig in the lower branches in the fall or at the very beginning of spring. After a certain time, they will take root, and then the gardener's task will be only to detach a branch that has its own root system, from the mother plant, and, if necessary, transplant it to a specific place.

Honeysuckle also reproduces well with green cuttings. To get new plants in this way, you should cut off the shoot in the middle of summer and divide it into several parts, on each of which there should be two or three internodes and only a few upper leaves (the rest must be removed). The cuttings are planted in a shaded place and covered with a simple cuticle, which can be made from the upper half of a plastic bottle with a screw cap.
