To prune a honeysuckle bush, you should prune it between April and June.
You should wait until the flowering season to ensure the branches are producing blooms.
After the plant blooms, you should look for branches which did not produce any leaves or flowers.
You should avoid trimming the scrub during the blooming season because this can halt the growth of the flowers.
To cut back honeysuckle, simply remove any branches which are dead, damaged, or diseased.
Hold your pruning shears at a 45-degree angle and cut branches at least a quarter of an inch from a bud.
Finish this process by removing a few branches from the middle to increase light and airflow.
