Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Where is the best place to plant a fuchsia?

Fuchsias will grow perfectly well in either full sun or partial shade with shelter from cold winds, although they will appreciate some shade at the hottest part of the day during very hot summers. To flower profusely they need a fertile, moist but well-drained soil.

Does a fuchsia come back every year?

Most fuchsias are tender perennials, which means that they’re perennials in warm climates, and so come back year after year if you live in a warmer location.

Plant Needs

  1. Fuchsia likes humidity, so using a pebble tray under the plant will help to maintain a cloud of humidity around the plant.
  2. High light is good, essential for good growth over the winter, but avoid a hot dry window where the plant cooks during the winter.

How do you make a fuchsia bushy?

Pinching out the soft growing tips of fuchsia plants encourages the development of bushy side shoots that will be covered in summer flowers. Ideally start pinching out in spring and continue until early summer. The first fuchsia flowers will be produced around four to six weeks after the last pinching.

Do you cut back fuchsias in winter?

Pruning isn’t usually necessary, although a light trim in late autumn may be helpful if you live in a windy area. Otherwise, prune lightly in spring, if needed, to reduce height or to remove thin or weak growth. Avoid pruning hardy fuchsia in winter unless you live in a warm, non-freezing climate.

Should you deadhead fuchsia?

Technically, you don’t need to deadhead your fuchsia plants. They’ll drop their flowers all on their own. The reason you should deadhead is if you want to encourage your plant to send out more blossoms for a longer period of time than they might otherwise.

How long does a fuchsia live?

With the proper care and attention a fuchsia can live for many years. I know of some growers who have plants 25 years or more old and, because they have ‘grown up’ with their children, are now part of the family.

Will fuchsias grow in shade?
