A truly beautiful climber, suitable for growing in a container on your patio or balcony and producing a vast array of sweetly scented blooms.
Ideal for a pot or planted in the sunny spot of a smaller outdoor space, this late Dutch honeysuckle really can be grown by anyone, whatever the size of your garden!
With an impressively long flowering period from early summer until the end of autumn, the 'Serotina' produces merlot-coloured buds in early summer, which open to reveal fabulously fragrant flowers.
Easy to grow and maintain, with the only pruning required being a quick snip to keep it tidy. This climber is also disease tolerant and fully hardy.
Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready for planting straight out.

The 'Serotina' positively thrives in a coastal garden so is a perfect choice for those lucky enough to live by the sea!
'Lonicera' has a vigorous climbing habit and will flourish when twined around a fence, arbour or pergola.
Planting the climbers 45cm apart will provide you with good even coverage. Your plants will also appreciate some vertical wire supports, again at 45cm intervals.
Keep the soil moist, watering weekly in the warmer months and fortnightly in Winter if dry.
If honeysuckle aphids appear, wipe them off and spray the leaves with soapy water. Spring feeding will help to prevent powdery mildew.
Lonicera will be happy in sun or partial shade. Avoid strong sunlight, which can scorch your plant.
Feed with a general purpose fertiliser and mulch in Spring.
