Use bark, leaves, natural insulators. You may find that your container is one that does not drain well.
Filtered light throughout the day, under lath Fuchsias other restraint is best. When new growth appears, repot the plant. Though fuchsias are typically treated as annuals, they can be cut back and grown again the following year. The species, hybrids, and other cultivars listed below have been tested for at least three years in the Pacific Northwest. A gold rule: DO NOT PRUNE HEAT STRESSED PLANTS.
The Northwest Fuchsia Society was Fuchsias in 1983.
The stressed plant should then be put in a shady place out of the wind, at or near ground level, until either the leaves have plumped up again or, if the leaves have fallen, new Fuchsias have developed. When either spring- or fall-rooted cuttings have made 2 or 3 inches of new growth, nip out the growing point. From spring to fall, fuchsias produce dozens of brightly colored teardrop-shaped flowers from trailing stems, and they do so in the kind of shady conditions where most plants struggle.
Why Best of the Web? I prefer to soak the plant Fuchsias cold water until it is Fuchsias cooled down, then drain it well and keep it cool as described above. Flowering will be delayed until later in the season, but your fuchsia will produce more flowers for a longer amount of time.
If overwintering in the garden, then make sure you add a thick layer of mulch to the soil and then top it with bark chips. All recommendations for pesticide use are for South Carolina only and were legal at the time of publication, but the status of registration and use patterns are subject to change by action of state and federal regulatory agencies.
Roots should develop in three to four weeks, and at this time you can remove the cover.
Make sure that you pinch the tops of the shoots as they emerge from young trailing and bush varieties to help the plant spread out and flower.
Tidy up the Fuchsia by removing all dead, dying, or damaged foliage and growth.
