Forgot to say you can grow these as standards so my advise on to a pot, increase the size of the pot as they get bigger after a year or so. Replant when plant is 'sleeping'

One per pot, start them off in 6 inch pots, pot up if the roots start hanging out the bottom. Only one website says they're hardy, and that's one that's selling them, so I'm not convinced - you could contact the British Fuchsia society if you want more detailed info.
