Lonicera periclymenum 'Graham Thomas'

Graham Thomas is a hardy, climbing, deciduous perennial, which means it sheds its leaves in autumn and produces fresh new leaves every spring. It will grow and flower for many years, producing large, white scented flowers, turning to yellow with age. The plant is happiest climbing over walls, trellises, pergolas, sheds, trees and bushes, creating an informal, but attractive, nostalgic cottage garden effect.

Plant Care

Remove unwanted, weak or old stems just after flowering. Tie to support as required. Plant in any good, fertile, moist soil, preferably with its roots in the shade.

Planting Instructions

Height/Width

Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
