Honeysuckle Scentsation dropping buds

My honeysuckle is smothered with potential flowers, but the buds are looking a bit feeble and dropping off before they open.  Why is this happening, and is there anything I can do to stop it?

I have 3 of these planted last September when they had lots of lovely flowers.  All I can see this year are some little sticks but no obvious new growth.  Are they usually this late to show signs of new growth?  They are in a border which is shaded early and late in the day.  Have slugs or snails been at them?

So, does nobody grow this, or have any advice?  Or are you just too busy gardening or sunbathing?

This was an impulse buy at Harrogate Spring Flower Show, 3 plants for the price of two.   I thought I could find out what conditions it likes on the net, but information is very scanty.  So can anyone tell me what soil conditions it likes and whether it can cope with a fair amount of shade?

Sunseeker, start a new thread with your request.  It is more likely to get comments with its own title, than buried here alongside Sarah Bernhardt    Also, if you can give a bit more information, about the kind of soil you have and whether you want shrubs for sunny or shady spots, that would be helpful.

Chicky,  I copied and pasted part of your post, but why has your smiley been transformed into a question mark?
