Hi I am sorry to bother you. I have a honeysuckle plant in a large pot in my front garden; very sunny and I keep it well watered. It's growing fine however there are few leaves. It's planted in general Homebase compost and I have just watered with tomato food. How can I produce more foliage please. It's about 3 years old and growing up the front wall of my house and now about front door height. Many regards. Ken in Colchester.

Get a much, much larger pot - something about 2 feet deep by a minimum 12 inches wide, though wider than that would be good. Its not got enough root room, and any plant is only as good as its roots...

It really needs to go into the ground, then it will romp away.
