I have been given a small fuchia in a pot, and its
bells are now beginning to drop.

With winter around the corner, (and living at a reasonable height in Lancashire) what advice could anyone give me to ensure it continues to flourish next year and thereafter. ?



Take it into a frost-free place and cut it back. Keep it dryish until the spring, then repot it and start it off again.

if the plant is not a hardy fuchia it must be kept frost free.if you have no place to keep it .one trick that i have used is strip all the leaves off the plant and trim back by at least half and bury in the ground.then in early spring dig it up and plant it in a pot till it shoots but keep it frost free. hope this is of some use

Hi Fezzy2001uk, when you say bury it in the ground does that mean the complete plant, stems and all.
