  • Provide part shade for your cute box honeysuckle plant! They don’t like too much sun as it stresses them out–think of them as sunburnt prone.
  • They do best with well drained soil with mulch. This does a few beneficial things: conserves the water, prevents root drowning, and protects the roots!
