Hi all,I have a standard fuchsias,i believe it has to be in green house over winter and pruned,its about 2 /3 years old and had a great big show this year, now how hard do I cut please, pic one,  also pic two,, have I pruned this type correctly this one was also big and beautiful this year  many thanks.



Pop in into the GH now, leave it slightly damp, not wet, prune in spring but only lightly cutting out straggly stems and maintain the shape, the second seems to be a bush type, leave it as it is, feed them both in spring.


just the job Dave ,all done and in the green house,many thanks

Glad you're all sorted Alan  

Hoping dave can advise on my hardy fuschias in the garden now 

All flowers now finished and all leaves dropped following one night of frost! All very leggy and twiggy, how hard shall I cut back? Or do I leave till spring? Hope you can help 

Thank you x can either leave them over winter and cut back in early Spring or you can cut back now. Spring seems to work with mine.  Depends on the weather tho and where you are.  If you do them now, use the bits for cuttings as a failsafe


If you leave them til spring it helps to give more protection from frost.
