I have a 2yr old honeysuckle that flowered last year but this year the leaves have bad brown patches on them, there are signs of attempting to flower but nothing! It is in a large pot with gravel over soil surface as a clematis shares the pot (this has flowered ok) does anybody have any idea what has caused this?

I would say the problem is the container. Honeysuckles are not suited to growing in containers and would get root bound very quickly. They are a woodland climber and grow very tall and are best planted in the ground. 

Thank you for that, i will move to the ground and cut it back, hopefully it may survive
