Hi, honeysuckle is pretty tough so hopefully yours will recover.
I'm planting another in a very dry area under some trees - when I plant it I'm going to insert a plastic bottle 'funnel' like this
to enable me to direct water straight to the roots of the honeysuckle - I use this method for growing courgettes in raised beds and it gets the water right down to the roots instead of running off the surface of dry ground.
I almost bury the bottle so that only a couple of inches is showing about the soil, so it's not too unsightly.
