Hi, Gardeners! Transplanted this honeysuckle vine about a month ago, and I'm delighted to see it'll soon be blooming, but something is chomping it to bits. I've sprayed it with insecticidal soap twice but every day I come outside there are more yellow, bitten-up leaves. Can anyone offer any suggestions on what to do? If I lose any more healthy leaves, I think it'll have trouble supporting itself. Thank you so much!

To be honest I think the plant is getting too much water and is suffering from lack of oxygen in the roots. Let the top inche dry well before watering again.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
