Feed with an acid fertilizer, such as those labeled for Azalea/Rhododendron/Camellia plants, using 1/2 to 1/4 recommended strength and dilute it. You can also add coffee grounds to the soil around your fuchsia plant. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/ingredients/coffee-grounds-gardening.htm

In addition, you may want to consider loosening and amending your soil with compost prior to planting. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/improving-compacted-soil.htm
