I have a trumpet honeysuckle that is five years old. Last year, didn't produce much for flowers. This year, leaves look like they were frozen, curling, turning brown, had a lot of bare wood, no much for flowers. Dp I cut back drastically? Any other suggestions? Love it, and hate to see it go!!

Honeysuckles produce flowers on new growth so to get your plant to flower profusely, you'll want to prune it down on an annual basis. I'd cut it back drastically to remove the old and overcrowded stems and foliage. New growth will be healthy and green and I'm sure you'll see lots of new flowers this year.
