My five year old honeysuckles have produced sweet fragrant flowers every year until now. The blooms are just drying up before they even get a chance to open or if they do open they are very dry with no sticky residue or fragrance. Plants are green and look healthy but blooms just die immediately

Mine did that the first couple years that I had it. Guess it was just "growing pains" and who knows what all, but it has been a blooming fool for the last couple of years. It was pretty well established, and in April I had to "exhume" it and move it to a new place. The root system must have been immense, as there was NO way I could dig it up. I had the Spousal Unit dig it out with the bucket of the loader tractor. I didn't know where I was going to plant it, so I stuffed the whole roots system and some soil into a 20 inch pot. About 3 weeks later I planted it where I figured it would do good. I wasn't expecting much this year, with all that upheaval and root "re-arrangement", but it's taken off, grown lots on the obelisk I have for it to climb on, and blooming lots.

To answer your question...........I can't. Rolling on the floor laughing Just that mine had the same thing but doesn't any more.
