Does my Honeysuckle need to be pruned,just wondering as all the flowers are at the top on this years growth.Or is it just that it's up a north facing wall and reaching for the sun?



If space is limited, prune annually to keep growth within bounds.
Remove straggly growth after flowering.
Late summer varieties are best pruned in spring. Lonicera japonica can become top-heavy and benefits from cutting hard back to 1m (3.5ft) high every two to three years.
