Misc FactsI have over wintered Fuchsia in a bright window. Before the first frost cut back the plants hard and repot. You can move them down into a smaller pot. Make sure you spray for pests, since in my greenhouse and house Fuchsia were Spider Mite and White Fly magnets.
Author's NotesHad this Fuchsia on my patio and it was extremely florific and compact. It was growing on a table where it got some direct morning sun, part sun and than shade.
