I bought a fuchsia about three months ago and it was beautiful for a while on the porch but it is now looking very sad.I gave it fresh soil in the hopes of trying to save it.I had considered moving it inside where it is a little cooler, do you have any suggestions?

Fuchsias love shade and cool weather. They tend to droop when temperatures are too high. You can't change the weather, but you can move it inside where it will get bright light and temperatures below 80 degrees. I think it will perk up for you, especially if you pinch it back when you take it indoors. Pinching out the stem tips will encourage healthy new stems and lots of flowers. Enjoy!
