No Luck Propagating Honeysuckle - Knowledgebase Question

I have tried to propagate my honeysuckle and for some reason I haven't had success. I've tried placing cuttings in water with vitamin B to root, planting cuttings with root hormone, and laying a rock on a vine to see if it would grow roots. I have asked everyone that could help, including nurseries and Master Gardeners . I would appreciate it if you could help me.

burying and anchoring process. You can have several parts of the stem buried as long as you leave 5-6 inches of stem above ground. By the time you've reached the end of the stem you should have several parts buried and several parts left above ground (it should look like a snake). Keep the soil moist and the injured parts of the stem should develop roots at the old leaf nodes. You'll be able to tell if the stem has rooted because new shoots and leaves will be produced. Wait until mid-autumn before digging the new plants and cutting the old stems away. Hope your honeysuckle adventure is successful! burying and anchoring process.
