I purchased two fuchsia flowering plants from you and they are not doing very well. What shall I do to save them from dying?

Fuchsia's are perfect for hanging baskets in shady spots. They require lots of water and need good air circulation to keep them healthy. They are susceptible to root rots if the soil remains soggy, and they can get a disease called 'bud blight', which causes the buds to blacken. You may be able to restore the health of your fuchsia's by pinching or cutting them back, which will encourage the growth of new and healthy stems, and putting it in a brightly lit but shady location. Hope they perk up for you!
