Been gardening for 50 years, never used it and never had a problem getting cuttings to root. Waste of money

Fuschia cuttings

definitely pot on now, make sure you dont over water them, if kept above 5 degrees they will put on plenty of growth over winter.

Fuchsia plants

There are not that many hardy ones so I would get them in the greenhouse if possible.

Trim any long roots a bit,remove any flowers and leaves and cut back the plant by about a third. If you can keep them above 5 degrees they will put on some growth over winter giving you a good start for next year.

I also cut mine back by a third, if you can keep them above 5 degrees they will put on growth during the winter and give you an early start next year especially for cuttings.

Thanks Lyn, if I sow them in spring will they flower next year?

Is it too late to sow Gaillardia now to flower next year ? or is it best to buy plug plants and overwinter them in the greenhouse.

Lovely red leaves

I cut mine down to about 3 feet after the leaves drop and it stills grows to about 10 feet the next year.

I cut mine done by a third, strip the leaves off. If it stays above 5degrees it will begin to shoot new leaves
