I'm going to lightly trim mine when it's finished flowering (Jasmine) and then cut it hard back in the spring as I have no foilage at the bottom either.

I was advised to cut my honeysuckle back immediately after the last flowers had gone. Last year I did this about the end of June and it seemed to pay off this year as it really filled out and had a lot more flowers. Will do the same again this year.
