My dwarf bush honeysuckle plants leaves are yellow-green and I am requiring what the proper soil ph needs to be and what fertilizer is needed to feed them. I use Miracle Grow when feeding all the plants in the area.

Lonicera are tolerant of most soil types so it may not be your soil's pH, but the cultivar you're growing. Certain types of dwarf honeysuckles have naturally yellow-green foliage. In fact, the pale yellow-green young leaves of this new dwarf honeysuckle contrast beautifully with the darker-green of its older foliage. Since you're already feeding with Miracle-Gro, I think you're supplying all the nutrients your plants need.
