It's best to switch to a balanced fertilizer (with the same amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) such as 10-10-10, to promote blooms.

But if your fuchsia has already produced lush leaf growth this season with no flowers, it might actually have too much nitrogen, which can inhibit flowering.
Here are some other possibilities for why your plant may not be flowering:
