Besides, how do you protect fuchsias from frost?
Hardy varieties of fuchsias can overwinter in the ground and require minimal care.

- Lay about 1 to 2 inches of fresh mulch around the plants for a little winter insurance.
- No watering is necessary.
When can I put fuchsias outside?
From late May/early June until autumn, fuchsias can stand outside or be planted into patio containers. Early summer is also the best time to plant hardy fuchsias outside, so they have time to get well established before their first winter.
