Fuschias

Hi  I normally cut back my fuschias end of March but this year I have lots of new growth on the stems.  Do I leave this or should I still cut back?

    I always cut mine right back to encourage new growth.

  • Still should be fine to do so. I even had buds forming on mine but still cut it back hard just last week as in theory they should still be atleast semi-dormant

  • thanks....I will cut back then.

  • Hi again,   can I take cutting from the growth I cut off

    Depends how long the shoots are. I always put new growth cuttings in a small cup of water and let them get on with rooting.

    Been fairly ruthless today (for me) and cut mine back. They do seem to be easy to root from cuttings. Got a few that had the jam jar with water treatment and they are growingimage

    It would be a shame not to really! I personally can never resist taking cuttings and fuchsias are incredibly easy to root either in water or in soil with a polythene bag over it.
