Fuchsia Plants

Anonymous added on May 5, 2011 | Answered

I live in Berks County, PA. Can I plant this in the ground and have it live through the winter? Will it grow best in the shade outside? What kind of liquid 'food' do I feed it? Also, do I 'pluck' the dead flowers off or let them fall naturally?

Hardy varieties can tolerate winters in warmer climates, but many are overwintered indoors or at least given added protection, like mulch, outside. I find it better to deadhead flowers in order to promote additional blooming, but this is strictly up to you.
