It’s best to prune fuchsias in the spring. If you notice any weak spindly growth, cut these shoots right back to the base. If your Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby' is well established, prune out the oldest stems when the fresh buds begin to break, aiming to keep an open framework. Reduce the remaining stems to restrict their vigorous growth to the space available and tie the stems in to their support.
