Just bought plant in a 2 L pot  It says plant in a "generous pot" which is meaningless.  It grows to 1m so what size pot should I use ?  Is there some form of ratio of plant size to pot that I can use ? Thanks

    Fuchsias don’t like to be over potted, that is , don’t put a small plant straight into a big pot, pot it on gradually when you can see the roots at the bottom of the pot, or gently tip it out and see if the roots have filled out to the edge of the pot.

    Fuchsias like their roots cool so don’t put them in black pots as they attract the heat more. Keep them damp, don’t let it dry out and just pot on as necessary.
    Feed with a tomato food or other higher in Potassium.   That will keep it flowering. Deadhead as often as you can.
