My Fushsias what next .


Hello all , just thought I would show you my Fushsias that I showed you in an earlier blog and thought they had died , not looking to bad but what do I do with them next after they flower do I leave alone or prune them ?
also my Pyracantha as grown rather wide can I cut that back ?

All that said had a lovely 4 days in Torquay to celebrate our Golden Wedding back were we spent our honeymoon the weather was brilliant sunshine everyday ! came home to a lovely cake & champers , lots of flowers & cards , and a lovely Welsh Love Spoon off our daughter & son plus their families beautifully carved with our names and the date & name of the church we married in .
plus some little wall hangings in our Arbour come windbreak .

Congratulations on your anniversary ! :o)

Your fuchsias are wonderful. I'd leave them for now, and cut back in spring, after they start sprouting.

Many Congratulations to you and your Husband,Kidsgran,on your Golden wedding glad you had a lovely time..and lovely gifts too...I have been cutting back my Pyracantha today,but making sure I don't cut the berries off,for winter display.
Strangely enough,it said in our local paper yesterday,to prune them back now,so I did ! Well.I managed half of it,it's so big !..good luck :o0

Congratulations to you and your husband Kidsgran, pleased you had a good time and you have some lovely gifts as well, I do like the Lovespoon, your Fuschia`s are looking good, I always leave mine until late springtime....

Congrats from me too. Such lovely gifts you have received.
I do know the Pyracantha can be cut right back but there is a correct time to do it but I'm not sure when that is. Best to follow Bloomers advice. Good luck and watch out for those thorns....ouch!!!
