Anyone else overwintering their fuchsia in loft.

I have just taken down 1 box which had Voodoo and La Campenella still in their hanging basket in a box.

New shoots searching for light ,so I have taken them out of baskets and downsized into new fresh compost so they can now start to grow on.



If your fuchsia's are throwing shoots and searching for light Scotkat, I think its too warm in that loft. Mine take over the the conservatory in winter which is not heated and I cover over with fleece, which I am a big believer in when frost is forcast.
We have had temperatures down to -8C, this winter and fingers crossed I have only lost one plant up now,and I have not put that down to frost
