Talkback: New year welcome
Sandra, I've always brought my Fuchsia 'Thalia' under cover for winter to provide frost protection. I do not believe this variety, one of the triphylla types, would be fully hardy. I'd recommend bringing it into a sheltered greenhouse, conservatory or even a bedroom windowsill. Water very little, just keeping the compost from going bone dry. Their leaves may fall, but water more when conditions warm up in spring and you'll get new growth, and can prune back any dead shoot tips.
