I was hoping you all might be able to help. I spent the better part of Spring combing the local green houses for Honeysuckle with no luck. One of my friends has a huge (a whole side of her fence) covered in it! Would any of you know what the best way to transplant some of it from her vines to start my own little patch?


Thanks,


PD

I found this info about propogating new plants,


cut a tender shoot that is at least six inches long. Remove the lower sets of leaves. Dip the cutting in a rooting compound. You can purchase this product at any garden center. Stick the cutting one inch into a good potting mix. Be sure to thoroughly wet the soil prior to planting.
