Fuchsias in Winter

I bought a fuchsia from Kew gardens in the summer which I put in a pot and it has been beautiful. Please could you tell me how to look after it during the winter. I have a greenhouse but it does not have heating.

Fuchsias

Our established three-year-old, hardy Fuchsias have somewhat this year been disappointing. Some have not developed late foliage growth and when they did so, had some brown leaves. Others have developed foliage growth but no blossoms until late autumn. Some of which still have some beautiful blooms on, especially with the mild weather at present. Is there anything I should be doing to prevent this from happening another year?

Do you prune them? These plants bloom best when pruned yearly. You can prune them back by a third to a half in late winter or early spring.

Fuschias

Can I dig up an 8-year-old fuschia and replant it? It is very happy where it is, but we are building a wall and need to move it?

ANSWERS

You can, but get as much of the root ball as possible and give it a pretty severe pruning when you move it. This will help ensure that it survives.

Fuchsia Plants

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?

ANSWERS

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.

Frost and Fuchsias

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.
