Water raised Fuchsia cuttings

I've successfully rooted some hardy fuchsia cuttings in water but how to now grow them on in compost? Any special method

    Hello Yvonne. Just pot them up carefully into some good compost and water well. They may droop a little at first as they adjust to being in a solid growing medium, so don't be tempted to overwater.

    I do all my fuchsias in water, you need to be very gentle with the roots so put a sprinkling of compost in the pot, stand the cutting in then gently top up. Keep in the shade until they’ve recovered.
