    Sounds like they just don't like that spot.  Honeysuckles are woodland-edge plants and need their roots kept permanently damp and preferably in shade but their heads in sun.  They hate dry soil and don't do well in containers.  Does any of that help?
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • If this one dies then that's a sure sign to try something else. Right plant, right place as Beth Chatto says. If it's sunny then maybe try a passion flower. Hopefully it will come good for you.

    Honeysuckles hate containers and shallow soil ... they need a deep cool shady  root-run and their heads in the sun. They’re plants of ditch-side hedgerows and damp woodland fringes. 
    Check where they grow in the wild when choosing a home for your plants and you won’t go far wrong.
