These guys came back to life recently but just the upper part of the stems really should i cut and root them or try and encourage more growth? Heres a pic to give you a bit of an idea of the way they look. Thank you :-)

Is that a tender fuchsia - looks like it. You'll need to bring it in for the winter or you'll lose it. You can try cuttings as well though. Don't, whatever you do, cut it down now.

Im not sure Bamboo it was with the other one . They are called '' Bush Fuchsia Mojo 'Pastel Delight' ''. How long should i wait to take the cuttings ??

Oh dear, definitely tender bedding fuchsias then. They may not survive the winter even inside - you should bring them in and treat them as houseplants, or put them in a heated greenhouse for the winter. If you want cuttings, I think its a bit late, but its worth a try.

ok Thanks Bamboo. I'll give it a try. Im hopin to get some more early next year so hopefully then i'll have learnt more about them :-))

There are hardy ones that will survive outside in the ground, see if you like any of those for next year.
