Fuchsia are best planted in a well-drained soil of sand, clay, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Fuchsia are well suited to flower beds and borders within city, courtyard, cottage and informal garden settings. They also make fantastic container and basket plants.

It is recommended that tender varieties be planted in containers or baskets where they can easily be removed to a warmer environment when the first sign of frost sets in. Dig a hole as deep and wide as the root ball and water thoroughly and deeply to settle into place.
Water regularly during warmer weather, taking care not to overwater as this may rot the roots. Fertilise every fortnight, although this should be limited towards the end of summer as your plants start to prepare to slow down for the winter. When the weather becomes colder, remove your plants and store them indoors in an environment such as a porch or conservatory.
It is possible to propagate Fuchsia by softwood cuttings or semi-hardwood cuttings.
