I 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.
I have used this plant many times in containers. Very easy to grow and I especially like the orange, tubular pendulous flowers.
