How to cut back your fuchsias


FuchsiasHello Richard. 

Could you please tell me when and how to cut back my fuchsias. Thank you. Robert Nanson  

Hi Robert,

Hardy bush fuchsias should be cut back to around 6in from the ground in early/mid March. The hardy climbing fuchsia (Lady Boothby) should be trimmed back at the same time to around 4ft. But if those branches have suffered any die back due to the winter snow and cold, you may need to cut them back even further until you reach healthy green wood.
