Answer: Before first frost, cut back the branches to the edge of the pot. Store them either indoors in a 45F degree, bright, sunny room or outdoors in a trench. In areas where the ground doesn't freeze hard, take the plant out of its pot, tip it sideways and place it in a one-foot deep trench covered with leaves or bark mulch. In March, dig up and repot the plant, placing it indoors until danger of frost has passed.
Green, soft tip cuttings of fuchsias can be taken all year round but the best time of the year is spring. Cuttings root very easily in a rooting compost, or in a glass of plain water.
