Is it ok to transplant my fuchia its sill in flower
Do you mean from a pot to the ground, from the ground to a pot, or from one patch of ground to another patch of ground?

I've transplanted my hardy ones from pots to ground this year...not going to try and keep them in greenhouse..tried that last year and lost the lot except one! Big gamble?
No, not a big gamble, Izzy, but absolutely the right thing to do with hardy fuchsias.
Plant hardy fuchsias deeply so that the base of the stems get plenty of protection under the ground.
But what about moving ones already in the ground to another spot while still flowering? I think I remember reading they shouldn't be moved in the autumn but left until spring - advice for me as well please!
Steragram, I don't think it makes any difference as long as you plant them deeply. I'd remove the flowers and cut them back a bit aswell.

And most definitely too late to plant now in to ground this should have been done early summer so they were established before frost .
Thank you everyone
I don't agree its too late to put hardy fuchsias in the ground - I planted 2 last week, new ones, both in flower. And if you've hardy fuchsias in pots, put them in the ground now,whether they're in flower or not, they may not survive in their pots.
As for moving them now if they're currently in the ground, only if you're desperate - best done in Spring, as Beattie says, whether they're flowering or not is irrelevant. Though in warmer parts of the country, I'd risk moving them now, personally. What you must not do is cut anything off them...
Praise be!....I haven't cut anything off them...did hesitate for a few seconds though.
Steragram, I've also moved one from one position to another in the garden...quite recently! They're all still in flower.
Well I cut mine back if I move them, and they survive.
Thank you everybody - I think I will wait until spring when I can cut them back and make them easier to move.
How do I say thanks?
