With perennial vines it can take 2 or 3 years before they establish their roots and begin to really put on a show, especially the honeysuckles, so be patient.* Fertilizing doesn't help with perennial vines as it can cause a flush of leafy growth at the expense of flowers.* So compost in the planting bed mixed in well is the key to them establishing their roots.* :)
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
