Pruning Fuchsia

Zone Butte MT | JulieB added on April 27, 2016 | Answered

I am wintering my hanging basket Fuchsia on a front porch during the winter. The temp is perfect, and the plant has grown and bloomed tremendously by now. It has long stems, but the flowers are falling off now. Is it ok to trim these almost 2 ft long branches after flowering? Thanks
