Comment from Christine Thorp

My Honeysuckle mint crisp appears 'dead' after one weeks holiday. It was thriving before I left. It over two years old.
All the leaves are totally brown and dried. There are some new buds but they appear to be wilting.
There are some tiny silvery streaks on the underside of the leaf, but I can't see any pests.

Hi I have a similar problem to a post a few years ago. I planted Mint Crisp in June 2017 and it grew beautifully and survived the Beast from the East in March 2018. It vigorously climbed higher than our 6ft fence and has a similar width but suddenly much of it is turning brown and the plant seems to be dying off. Interestingly below it is what was once a small,helathy azalea and this is also wilting badly yet the plants on either side are healthy and showing good growth. It is on a North facing fence but this also means the soil remains pretty moist so its not a lack of water problem. Any ideas?

l have just purchased tree of this variety of honey suckle because the label states that its evergreen. But you are stating that its semi evergreen. Which is correct?

sudden death of Mint Crisp!

Question from Kathryn Hinton

My Lonicera 'Mint Crisp' was probably the most healthy, vigorous plant in my new garden. It is on a trellis in quite a reasonably sunny spot, with a clematis alongside. Suddenly it looks nearly dead, as if it has had no water for a long time. I checked it for pests, tried to aerate the soil a bit, and watered it, but nothing seems to do any good. The clematis is fine. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Climber help for a gardening novice

Question from Paul Turner

I have a couple of lonicera japonica mint crisps and was wondering what the best way is to make them climb up my wall. They have been planted for about 12 months and look a bit heavy in the middle area. They are attached to some trellis that stands at the top of my 5ft wall. Thanks
