From one grandma to another, your junction is the node, and that`s where the roots will emerge. For some reason clematis like the node and just a little bit of stem pushed in to the compost. Hydrangeas like to root in a similar way with inter nodal cuttings. If you try rooting a whole trayful of cuttings, dont let the leaves touch. The more little cuttings you pop in, the more chance you have that at least 50% should take !
Fairygirl, honeysuckle should always be propagated at a cool time of day. They need to be cut to a node, and YES shade is really important if they are not to wilt.
