Q.Fuschia queries

Zone Dublin, Ireland | davewalsh29 added on January 1, 2018 | Answered

Hi, me again ?

So i have 3 Fuschia bushes in my back garden (2 full and 1 young plant) and they were thriving up to a couple of months ago when we got some pretty sever frost, and now they are pretty much bare as you can see from the photos. I’ve been told to cut them back to about a foot and they will regenerate in the Spring, but wanted to make sure this was right, and also if i do anything different with the young plant in pic 3.

Pic 4 is a clipping of a red Fuschia i took from my mams house and i would truly love to keep this as she is no longer with us, so wanted to know should i leave as is or cut back for Spring.

The last pic are also Fuschia cuttings that i want to keep, again from my mams, so want to see should i leave them as is to make sure they survive til spring.

Again, thank you in advance for your time and expertise.

Hope everyone has an amazing 2018.

You have been given correct information, as long as you are within the growing zone of the plant. I would leave the little clones alone for now, and keep them indoors until next spring.
