The Q&A Archives: Wintering Of Fuchsia

Question: What do I need to do to keep this years fuchsia over to next year?

Answer: Fuchsias can be overwintered after simply cutting the foliage back to the edges of the containers and then placing the containers in a garage, or other unheated (but above-freezing) storage area. Don't water them until you see green buds on the remaining stems in the spring time. You can root cuttings of fuchsias to keep indoors over the winter months, planting them in soil after they've developed a substantial root mass.
