When is the best time to transplant a mature hardy fuchsia?
Transplanting Hardy Fuchsia
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
This is often highly debated among gardeners. Some say spring, others say fall. Either time is fine; however, it mostly depends on where you are. While hardy fuchsia survives most winters, in regions where extremely cold or freezing temps are inevitable, spring would most likely be the best time for transplanting. All other locations, with milder winters, would generally transplant in the fall (though it still doesn't hurt to insulate it with a layer of mulch--like straw).
