Plant trailing fuchsias directly into baskets, window boxes, Flower Pouches™ and containers, in any well drained compost. Grow them on in warm, frost free conditions. Pinch out the growing tips of each plant while they are still small to promote bushier growth and more flowers. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise fuchsia plants to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10 day period, prior to placing them in their final positions in sun or semi shade.
Feed and water frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of flowers. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to prolong the flowering period.

Lovely but varying in vigour
By Thomas Wolverson 25-07-2015
Mine weren't too well-treated when I first got them, as I waited too long before planting them out. Three of them seem shy to flower but are growing nicely and look healthy; the others are Bella Rosella, which is flowering generously as well as looking just as vigorous as the others, and Bicentennial, which is looking a bit ropey, almost as though it's making itself sickly by flowering before it's ready. I'm of a mind to pull them off to encourage it to put more energy into foliage before the end of the season.
Overall pretty happy, but the different plants aren't consistent in their habit so this is something to be aware of.
