Soil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Best in rich soils with good drainage but fairly adaptable.
Light: Full sun is best for good flowering
Water: Once established, the plants need only moderate watering, unless the summer is very dry. Does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water.
Spacing: 3 - 4 ft
Fertilizing: Honeysuckle grows so well that little or no fertilizer is necessary in most cases. If planted in poor soil, you can apply organic, or slow release low-nitrogen, high-phosphorus 5-10-5 fertilizer in spring (after the first growing season).
Winterizing: Consider applying mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.
Maintenance & pruning: Only lightly prune plants until they are well established. Best pruned in late winter or early spring once the threat of extreme cold has passed, and plant is still dormant. If mature vines have become woody and overgrown, you can rejuvenate by pruning one-third of the older stems to the soil. To shape the vine, cut back overly long stems so they are in keeping with the desired shape, and cut out any weak, spindly growth
