|When you deadhead, make sure to take the entire flower including the green bulge at the base of it below the petals. On fuschia it is probably easiest to use a scissors or fine pruner and snip somewhere along that little stem. If you take most of the little stem it will look tidier when you are done. I hope this helps.
