Homeysuckle

I am wondering why my Honeysuckle has not flowered this year nor last year. I planted it about 3 years ago-the leaves look healthy enough.
thank you

    That is a flower in the lower middle part of your top photo.   

    Have you ever fed or watered it?  It's been a very dry spring in most areas so it may be thirsty and this favouring foliage over flowers.  Try giving it a dollop of rose or tomato feed to encourage flowers and a few good big daily bucketfuls of water poured slowly so it soaks in deep to the roots.

    Water?  New plants need a good soaking before planting and anything planted this time of year needs regular and frequent waterings till the autumn rains set in.

    @naomi.gaffney I planted a honeysuckle three years ago and not a sniff of a flower for the first two years and suddenly it has started flowering now. As @Obelixx stated you have got a flower on yours so hopefully you will have many more. I think there is a thread on here where others have had to wait a few years for theirs to flower. So you are not alone.
    This is mine now.
