Hi I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb". So you want to raise honeysuckle from seed, well you're going to collect the seed from the spent flowers and you're going to find honeysuckles growing in many different parts of the community or you may go to one of the nurseries or catalogs to get some of the honeysuckle seeds but they're not one that you're going to find in every nursery or for that matter every seed catalog so you'll probably have to do a little more digging if you will to find the seeds from the honeysuckle than as opposed to many other varieties of vining plants. Honeysuckles are beautiful plants though and they have a nice fragrance and the seed is very tiny. If you do get the seeds and you save them put them in some dry paper toweling, let them dry out a little bit and then when you do plant them put them in a good peaty pearl lite soil and make sure that you water them well. They've got to be moist or they won't germinate. The germination should probably take about 15 days. Starting honeysuckle is easy to grow because it is a beautiful plant and you'll want to have more of them. Often they will reseed themselves in a location so you'll have honeysuckle coming back year after year. Growing honeysuckle is easy to do. I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb".
