Q Why didn’t my honey­suckle’s buds open?

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved - KEITH GEN­TLE, WIR­RAL

AHoney­suck­les pre­fer a slightly shaded spot. If they’re in a hot, dry bor­der or against a sunny wall they’re vul­ner­a­ble to aphids, which con­gre­gate on the flower buds and suck out all the mois­ture. In the hot sum­mer of last year this is most likely the rea­son the buds didn’t de­velop prop­erly.
