Hiya Sam, the former is not hardy I think, although not an avid collector of fuschias. The latter is hardy.cut both back quite hard. They will move now....I'm moving all sorts now. Trim the roots back a little too. The smaller fuschia I would pot up and put in gh.
I cut most everything back now....spring is so hectic......but it is mild here and severe cold weather needs to be taken into account so I would reduce the height of your lavatera to prevent wind rock and then cut hard again in spring
agree that there is so much in flower now. Today the temperature is approaching 18 right now,,prob more in my walled garden, so plants are enjoying themselves. However, I have already cut down some heleniums, dahlias, rudbeckias, etc., as I am keen to divide and replace and plant bulbs too. Paniculata hydrangeas already pruned.
