You don’t have to walk very far to see honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) around here! It grows in the lane outside The Woollen Mill and it is a beautiful sight. It’s pretty, it’s fragrant and it is vital for wildlife. Honeysuckle supports many species, some rare, including the white admiral butterfly, pollinating moths, thrushes, bullfinches and bumblebees. Flowering from June to September, it was once thought to bring good luck and ward off evil spirits if it grew around your home. Clusters of red berries ripen in autumn to contribute yet more colour to the gorgeous hedgerows.
