Q.Frost and Fuchsias

Anonymous added on May 7, 2011 | Answered

When I saw fuchsia baskets in the neighborhood, I was sure it would be alright to get one of my own. I acquired a most beautiful basket; however, the first night out, we had a cold spell again and it looks just horrible. I brought it into the garage, but it does not look any better. The soil is still pretty damp, but leaves are drooping and blooms have brown edges. Could fertilizing help, or do I need to cut my losses?

It will probably lose the leaves, but as long as the stems survived, they will regrow their leaves fairly quickly. Give it some time to recover and it should look lovely again in no time.
