Sounds like a good idea to cut shoots off them.
I don't know how fast growing the honeysuckle is.
What I do is keep the cuttings for two days in water, then right before planting, deep the tip of the stem, [about half an inch] in 'rooting hormones'. This should encourage quick root formation. Rooting hormones come in many brands and is not expensive.

Hope this works

Everywhere a birds 'drops' a seed, they will grow...Trust me...

About anything you do to them will make them grow...I have seen them run underground, and root where they touch the ground...

As I said...Hard to kill em...

Good luck!
