I planted it from a cutting two years ago and had two long branches, which I tied along my fence. This year lots of new growth on those branches but no flowers. I live in Durham, England.

A Honeysuckle that is less than 3 years old may be to young yet to flower.
Don't make the mistake in fertilizing your Honeysuckle. They will do well without extra feeding, but if you think your soil may be lacking nutrients you could use a light fertilizer early in spring. Look for a low nitrogen formula. 5-10-5. To much nitrogen will cause all vine and no flowers.
Give you plant plenty of sunshine and care and time!
