Q.How can I get fuchsia to bloom.

Have followed your directions for OVER wintering fuchsia but they never seem to bloom again. They look very healthy but no bloom. Any idea what I am doing or not doing. Many thanks.

I would be willing to bet that the soil they are being planted in contains too much nitrogen, or not enough phosphorus and potassium. Supplementing phosphorus and potassium will help. These are normally sold as "bloom boosters" and should be used at 1/4 strength until you know how your plants react to them.
