I have tried to put the arch back up, I tied some string on the bottom and anchored it into the ground with some thick nails and then waited it down with some big bricks, but it still went and blew back over in the recent winds. I think it has given up the ghost. It is probably too flimsy for the weight of the honeysuckle. I am going to try and unravel the honeysuckle and then I will just have to prune it to release it and today I am going to get some new sturdier trellis and see what I can do with it. It's really upset me, fancy getting emotional over a plant!
Existing stems won't respond well to pruning but If you cut it back to ground level you'll quickly have a burst of beautiful new healthy shoots

Most excellent you've just solved my dilemma with one of our honeysuckles... what time of year is best for this = just after flowering like some clematis?
