Escallonias and foxgloves

Hi I planted an Escallonia shrub a couple of years ago and it is flowering really well. I need to cut it back a fair amount now. From what I have read, I should wait until it has finished flowering but it is still in full flower (we are in a mildish part of London). I don't mind losing a few flowers next year but don't want to stress it too much. When is the best time to cut given all of this?

I planted some foxgloves a couple of weeks ago thinking they would flower next Spring. A few are flowering already but are at a third of full height. As a biennial flower can i expect it to die next year or produce more flowers to full height? I know they self seed but we don't have masses so I'm not expecting lots more either!
