I have honeysuckles and clematis on a bank in a similar situation, but against a north-facing fence.. there is a rain-shadow effect and I have a soaker hose along the bank to give it a real soaking when the bed seems dry, particularly in the run up to flowering.
Since I did this, and since I've added home made compost mulch to the bed every spring and started feeding all the climbers with specialist Clematis feed in the spring, we've had really good flowering.
I've put vine eyes and wires across the fence for support.
I don't know whether you could move the honeysuckle ...... it depends on it's size. What you could do is to layer some of the shoots to make cuttings. Within a few months you'll have new honeysuckle plants ready to detach and pot up to grow on and plant out next year.
