to cut or not to cut

Hi Forkers. I have a couple of hardy fuscias that I keep in pots and have over wintered in my cold green house.Last year they finished the winter looking like a bunch of twigs so I cut them right down to the base. This year they look as good as they did when they stopped flowering in Autumn as our winter has been so mild. Do I still need to cut them right back or is it best to leave them alone?   imageimage

    I would treat them the same as you normally do.  The mild winter has left many plants unaffected but they'll get pretty leggy when the new growth starts.

  • mine are in the garden all winter i did see some new shoots at the base so should i cut mine back hard as well ???
