Tying Up Honeysuckle

All of my honeysuckles have rebounded well from the prior spray to clean off the powdery mildew that seemed to look like they were going to die from the shock and leaf picking off following that. Now it is in a growing spurt with blooms forming. I have them tied up some near the bottom, a few twined in, the rest is free falling so to speak. Would you tie it up more or let it go fitting them in the next tier when they get long enough?

This Fall or next Spring I am thinking of putting them in the ground, but definitely putting the green plastic fence behind them for more support.

I would really love to see new pics of honeysuckles you have taken if any.
