How do you overwinter trailing fuchsias?

The first step in wintering your Fuchsia is going to be bringing them inside your house. Next, spray your Fuchsia plant with water to kill off any hiding pests in the leaves. Keep your Fuchsia plants in a cool dry place, like a basement or an attached garage that's between 45 to 55 degrees F for example.

Besides, do fuchsias come back every year?

Annual or Perennial Fuchsia In fact, fuchsias are tender perennials. This means that you can grow these plants outside if you live in a very warm climate and they will come back year after year. However, in many chillier climates, gardeners grow fuchsias as annuals, planted outside after all risk of frost is passed.

when should you cut back fuchsias? In early to mid-spring cut back the previous year's flowering stems to within one or two buds of the older woody framework. Also remove any thin, weak or dead growth. Fuchsia may need cutting back to near ground level. This stimulates development of strong new growth on which flowers will be produced in late summer.

Also to know, can I cut back fuchsia in autumn?

Pruning isn't usually necessary, although a light trim in late autumn may be helpful if you live in a windy area. Otherwise, prune lightly in spring, if needed, to reduce height or to remove thin or weak growth. Avoid pruning hardy fuchsia in winter unless you live in a warm, non-freezing climate.

Should you deadhead fuchsias?

Fuchsias will drop their spent flowers naturally, so if you're only interested in keeping things neat, deadheading fuchsia plants isn't really necessary. However, when the flowers drop, they leave behind seed pods, which take energy to form and discourage the growth of new flowers.
