How do I care for my Fuchsias in winter?

Winter Care Of Fuchsias.

Fuchsias in many regions are not winter-hardy and in fall you must bring them indoors
If whitefly have been a problem for you, it is a good idea to wait till the first light frost of fall defoliates the Fuchsia, before bringing indoors. (No Leaves = no whitefly ).
If the plant has been growing in a hanging basket or patio tub, pot up in a pot, just big enough to take the roots.
Next trim back by about one third and gradually reduce the watering, till the leaves drop. (Collect and discard these as they fall.).

Keep in a cool light place and water very sparingly till late February.
