In order to prune without hurting blooming, you should wait until after the plant's blooms have faded, which should be in the summer. Also, do not take more than a third of the plant in one given year. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/gardenia/when-to-prune-a-gardenia.htm
