    i'm not aware of any restrictions for the honeysuckle, so that one you should have no problem if you take it back to a couple feet in length.

    the clematis is a different story. different varieties should be pruned at different times and not always every year and there are restrictions for some as to how far back to trim them. which one do you have???
