Hi, I have a small bed of Fuchias. It has been neglected but now that I have more time than of late, I'd like to get it as it should be.

The bed gets sunshine early to mid morning. After that it is shaded by Roses and Honeysuckle growing opposite and above it.

The Fuchsias seem happy enough and grow lovely flowers.They stay in position all year long.

The 'red' one ( name unknown) is 8 ft tall with flowers from base to top. The 'blue' one is Delta Sarah and as you see, although having beautiful flowers, is very 'woody' There are also a couple of others in there in the same state.

My questions are..could or should I cut them back and if so, by how much and when?

Although I can replace them, I'd hate to kill them through hacking at them :}
