Seems a silly question but how do you pinch out fuchsia and when do you pinch out fuchsia



Pinching out can mean nipping off flower buds to enable the plant to grow more leaves and become more bushy, or it can mean nipping out the growth at the tips to encourage bushiness on plants which seem a bit lean. Usually a finger and thumb are good enough - you need to grasp the stem just above a leaf joint, then, using your nails, nip out the stem. If your plants are already quite bushy and not showing buds, you may not need to do this at all.
