|I planted a Goldenflame honeysuckle this spring and the leaves have begun to turn yellow and mottled. Any suggestions?

|It's normal for the oldest leaves to turn yellow and brown before they drop. Your honeysuckle will continue to grow new foliage all summer long. I usually cut the vines down in the winter time to remove the oldest foliage. Then in the spring, all the vines and leaves are fresh and new and I avoid the yellowing and browning of the older leaves. Enjoy your garden!
