Has any one had expereince growing this variety of honeysuckle - which in garden centres is advertised as exceptionally fragrant? Is it really that better than other varieties?
Would I be better off with something like 'Hall's prolific' to cover an entire fence, rapidly - or does 'Scentsational' really live up to its name? I'm looking for rapid, healthy growth but also a powerful, garden-filling scent.
Finally, where's the best place to buy mature specimums of all climbers, including honeysuckle? I need several climbers each around 6 feet minimum height already and all the local garden centres seem only to sell tiny one foot specimums.
I haven't ever planted that particular honeysuckle, but if you want a climber to cover a fence then it might be worth looking at other options. Honeysuckle is great for scrambling through hedgerows and through other plants/trees, but it climbs by twisting/twining, so it tends to grow upwards in thick clumps, so not ideal for screening/covering anything.
