Q.Planting A Hardy Voodoo Fuchsia In Arizona Soil
Hello, I’m preparing to plant 3 voodoo fuchsia plants in my yard. I wanted to do this in the ground. I’m concerned about our clay like soil here as I know I need well drained soil for these fuchsias. Any guidance on how to successfully plant these in our soil? And how does that effect watering? How do I know how much to water? Thank you for your help

You first need to amend your soil to make it hospitable to plants. They like the soil somewhat moist, so be sure to water when the soil begins to dry. They don't like roots sitting in water, though, so you'll need to gauge how much water is enough.
