Would it be OK to cut back Lonicera nitida 'Baggesen's Gold' now. I have a small one about a foot high and growing fast. I thought if i cut it back a bit it would spread out?

I did a search and it seems it can be cut back now. Some said September. But I would like to hear views of more experienced people here. Don't want to ruin it

Yes. Lonicera nitida is often used as hedging and topiary. The plant is still quite small, so just give it a gentle prune of the new growth.
