Dollar Princess looking sickly
Hello, it’s my first time here - so please accept my apologies if I’ve posted in the wrong place or if a similar thread already exists.
I have a dollar princess fuchsia; it’s about 3 years old and quite woody at the base. It lived in a pot on a south-facing front door step for all that time until we moved home this summer. It’s always been outside, even over the winter. So in autumn, I planted it in our west-facing border and now it’s looking pretty sickly. Grey-green, not bright green, leaves which are a bit crispy and dropping... not sure if the photo helps... Is this a sign of frost damage as I fear, or is it just a case of the leaves dying off and my lovely plant becoming dormant? I don’t recall seeing this colour of leaf last winter, hence my concern as the frosts here have already been harder than on the west-London doorstep!
Should I lift it and keep it frost-free, just mulch it and hope, is it sadly too late and therefore destined for the compost bin...?
Thanks in anticipation.
