How do I plant fuchsias?

Fuchsias are wonderfully versatile and will happily grow in sun or partial shade in any fertile, moist, well-drained soil.

Similarly, you may ask, when can I plant a fuchsia?

For best results plant hardy fuchsias in early summer. You can also plant later in summer, but you'll need to water more in dry weather to help the fuchsias establish. Although they are hardy, planting from autumn to spring makes them vulnerable to cold damage and they may not survive their first season so easily.
