: : I very much love the honeysuckle bush..I planted it last year and it bloomed only one time. It is in with my roses that bloom a lot...want to move it to another spot and also prune it to keep it to a smaller size. Thanks Faye Please help!!!!
: Hi Kathy,

: You can easily reduce the size by half and it will grow back. It really is best to cut one third a year so as not to stress the plant. If you do cut it by half, do it in late February or early March. Also, consider pruning the oldest stems to the ground to reduce the overall size.

: Here's some links that should be helpful.
