How to propagate Winter Honeysuckle

Winter honeysuckle is a delightful shrub for extending the seasons: its winter flowers bring spring to the garden several months early while, at the other end of the year, its foliage lasts well into winter. It is sometimes evergreen in warm climates. Winter honeysuckle can be propagated by division, layering and cutting.

1. Division propagation of Winter honeysuckle

Winter honeysuckle tillers were stronger, and the survival rate of ramet was higher in autumn. The method was to dig out the tiller seedlings with root and soil ball around the mother plant of Lonicera japonica, plant them steadily, and water them thoroughly.

2. Layering propagation of Winter honeysuckle

It can be carried out from May to September. Select longer branches and bury them in the soil for 10-375px to keep the soil moist. Root can be half a month later, generally in the spring of the second year and mother plants cut off the layering seedlings, and can be divided into transplanting.

3. Cuttings propagation of Winter honeysuckle

It can be carried out in the middle and late June, selecting full semi-woody Winter honeysuckle branches as cuttings. Before cutting, dip the base of the branches in 2-4 hours, immediately insert the processed cuttings into the seedbed. The spacing of the plants is 250px×250px, the depth is 8-250px. After inserting, compacted, make the substrate and cuttings closely connected, and then pour water through.Shade properly and keep the bed moist often. Take root after 1 month and transplant seedlings the following year.
