Hi Forkers. I have a couple of hardy fuscias that I keep in pots and have over wintered in my cold green house.Last year they finished the winter looking like a bunch of twigs so I cut them right down to the base. This year they look as good as they did when they stopped flowering in Autumn as our winter has been so mild. Do I still need to cut them right back or is it best to leave them alone?  

I would treat them the same as you normally do.  The mild winter has left many plants unaffected but they'll get pretty leggy when the new growth starts.

Yes, cut them back hard.
