Honey suckle in pot


I am new to gardening and living in a new build property I decided to go for pots however, my honeysuckle isn't looking very healthy, yellow leaves with brown marks and leaves falling I believe is mildew? It is in mostly shaded area but the sun hits in the afternoons. I know I need to invest in a more sturdy trellis and a larger one. Does anyone have any advice or help it would be much appreciated

    Honeysuckle is rarely happy in a pot ... it's a woodland plant that needs a long cool and damp root run ... few containers can meet these requirements.

    For that position I'd go for one of the Boulevard clematis ... bred to be happy in pots and very floriferous 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
