Honeysuckles’ colourful  flowers, that range from yellow to bright-red blossoms, attract an abundant of wildlife to the garden.

With over 180 species of Honeysuckles, growing and care for vines is easy, and an ideal plant to grow on the Costa Blanca.

Honeysuckle pruning is recommended in the autumn-winter months, during a time when they are dormant.

Medicinal values of Honeysuckle are used in tea or from the oil, which can aid the digestion system. Honeysuckle also has anti-inflammatory properties, which is ideal for skin rashes or sunburn, relief for nausea, headaches and fever.
