Hi its mark can anyone tell me why my honeysuckle has never flowered / Ihave had it 4 years it produces plenty of leaves but never any flowers



First, do you know which variety it is; second, have you ever pruned or cut it back, and if so, when, and is it in sun or shade?

Some do seem a bit reluctant. They should flower on laterals from the main stems so keep trimming off the ends to encourage side shoots.

This one prefers a bit of shade and should not be cut down to the ground - you can thin out dead wood in winter, and reduce the stems by about a third, but remember this plant wants to be up to 12 feet, and will flower better if it is left to do that.
