Honeysuckle turning yellow


My Honeysuckle Halliana has yellow leaves with what appears to be a furry mould on them.

Some of the stems are also turning yellow with black blotches too.

The plant is watered weekly and gets direct sunlight from 7am-1pm. It has been recently repotted, and I have been feeding with high PK feed For the last 3 weeks as it's currently growing lots of flower buds.

What could be the cause?

    That looks to me like the onset of powdery mildew.

    The difficulty is that  honeysuckles rarely do well in containers. They’re plants of woodland and hedgerow and need a cool deep damp root-run and their heads in the sun. 

    How large is the container and what sort of compost have you used?
