Fuchsias and the mild winter.
I have always cut them down to the ground as soon as the new shoots show at the base in Spring. This year they are coming into leaf already. If they are not knocked back by the frost should they still be cut back, and if so when?
If they are not cut back and are allowed to grow older woody stems which are then frosted another winter are they less likely to grow again from the base?
