Q. Where can I buy honeysuckle? Does the garden grow honeysuckle?
Does the botanical garden have the honeysuckle plant? If yes, I would really like to visit whenever they are available which would be during the cooler months but either way I would just like to know if the garden grows them or not. Thank you very much.
