Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Do 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.

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.

What do you do with fuchsias in the winter?

Hardy varieties of fuchsias can overwinter in the ground and require minimal care.

  1. Clean up any dead leaves and debris from the ground so there is no place for disease or pests to hide through the winter.
  2. Lay about 1 to 2 inches of fresh mulch around the plants for a little winter insurance.
  3. No watering is necessary.

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.

Do fuchsia flower all year round?

Fuchsias are a much loved perennial garden favourite. Not only can they be used in the garden, but also in hanging pots, part shade and full shade. They burst into flower from late spring to early winter and exude happiness with their blend of contrasting colour.

When should fuchsias be cut back?

In early to mid-spring cut back the previous year’s flowering stems to within one or two buds of the older woody framework. Also remove any thin, weak or dead growth. Fuchsia may need cutting back to near ground level. This stimulates development of strong new growth on which flowers will be produced in late summer.

How do you keep fuchsias blooming?

Your fuchsia plant should be pinched continually through the summer to keep it producing flowers. Pinching your fuchsia is as easy as literally pinching or cutting the end one-quarter to one-half of each branch. If your fuchsia stopped blooming, fuchsias normally begin to flower within about six weeks of this pinching.

Should I deadhead my 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.

Do fuchsias like sun or shade?

Planting: Fuchsias will sunburn when exposed to too much light, but they won’t bloom in total shade. The challenge is to find or create a spot that provides strong, indirect light most of the day. Full morning sun for a few hours is excellent for fuchsias, but the hot midday or afternoon sun will bake them.
