45cms spacing isthe correct distance for training wires but you do actually have to intervene with clematis and honeysuckle and train them along the wires. Otherwise you end up with a cat's cradle. Just putting up a mesh won't help and may make it look worse as it'll be more difficult for you to manipulate stems.
If you really must, add extra lines of wire between the ones you already have and then in spring, cut the honeysuckle back so you can train new growtha s you want it. Leave the clematis till after it has flwoered as this variety flowers on old wood then cut back as much as you need in order to tidy it up.
Give all of them a good feed in spring when new growth starts and they should do well but remember you need to referee the new growth on a regular basis.
