Hi, I have four or five Fuschcias in the green house, some of which are already sprouting new little leaves.  My question is do I need to cut off the old growth from last year, especially for those who are not showing any new signs of life yet?  Or should I leave them to keep happily growing?  Didn't know if I trimmed them up whether it will promote better growth for this season.

Many thanks for any help given.

Yes, you can take them back to produce a bushier plant. If you don't want to knock them back too much, cut back to roughly 4"/10cm and leave a few of the new shoots in place.

And to get a good shape turn  fuchsia plant a quarter turn ever day .

And pinch out ever 3rd pair of leaves.
