Question: Does planting honeysuckle require anything special?

Answer: Honeysuckle doesn't need any special soil preparation. It will take the rest of the growing season to become well established and you should prune it back hard early next spring - all the flowers will be produced on new growth and if you don't prune it back you'll only get flowers at the very top of the plant, where the new growth begins.

Enjoy your honeysuckle!
