  1. Honeysuckle runs riot in my garden, but smells lovely. 🙂 It just keeps me busy cutting it back – there’s a wild version as well as those I planted and it wants to create a jungle!

  2. So I’m guessing honeysuckle originates from South Africa? Didn’t know that. Pity you can’t record and post the scent on your blog! For me, honeysuckle is one of best smells around, reminds me of a ragged bush that grew in the garden of the house in which I grew up. Very evocative.

    1. There’s various species of honeysuckle so I can’t make any general conclusion about it. This particular species would be from S.Africa. I can’t recall a scent, may need sun and warmth to bring it out – pretty sure that particular day had been just the opposite!
