Honeysuckle. (Banksia serrata (Red Honeysuckle))

We have two arches which are still largely uncovered, we're going to try and add netting to them to encourage a fuller covering for our climbers, the honeysuckle is doing quite well, however we've had little joy with our clematis this year so far. The buddleja (spelling?) is doing well, and the slugs are now being controlled with beer traps.

Yes, it's a tad pitiful isn't it? Shall have to give it more attention I think. I'm getting a little slug obsessed at the moment- hubby and I are out, torch in hand, at midnight each night flicking the little blighters into the beer traps and helping them along.
