    How often are you watering it? You may want to water it daily for a week or so to help it get established and a light fertilizer will help as well. There may also be air pockets in the planting hole, so step firmly around the base of the plant to collapse any pockets that might be in the soil.

    Generally, a lack of phosphorus leads to non-blooming issues in maost plants. I would have the soil tested to see what exactly is missing, and in the meantime, it wouldn't hurt to add a little phosphorus, like bone meal, to the soil around your vine.

    Your honeysuckle could be suffering from powdery mildew, caused by a fungus. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/powdery-mildew-homemade-and-organic-remedies.htm

    It may just be in need of some phosphorus, which helps most plants with blooming. Bone meal is a good way to add phosphorus to the soil. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm

    It may be a bit too shady and possibly a bit too damp in the area they are growing. In spring, the trees have not filled in all the way, so they get just enough light to bloom, but as summer progresses and the shade gets thicker as the trees fill out, they get a tad too little light. You might try selectivly pruning the surrounding trees to thin them out a bit and let a little more light through.
