How to care for your Fuchsia hanging basket
If you water and care for your fuchsia flower hanging basket the way you are supposed to, you will find that fuchsia flowers will grow abundantly pretty much all summer long.
- Hang fuchsia baskets in areas of the garden that offer partial to full shade; fuchsias perform poorly in high heat and sun exposure. Place them in areas such as porches.
- Move fuchsias indoors if temperatures rise above 76 degrees Fahrenheit to protect them from heat damage, which results in bloom failure.
- Water fuchsias regularly during the warmer seasons as they grow. Water when the soil’s surface feels dry.
- Maintain moist, well-drained soil with good fertility. Fertilize outdoor hanging basket fuchsias once a month with a soluble, complete fertilizer. Cease fertilization in the fall.
- Move fuchsia plants indoors before the first frost or when temperatures drop significantly. Cut back each fuchsia with pruning shears and remove existing leaves before overwintering. Irrigate with approximately 1 cup of water when fuchsias are stored indoors during the winter. Maintain a temperature of 45 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Inspect your plants regularly for abnormalities such as spotting, discoloration or the presence of insects. Contact a licensed professional for assistance with diagnosis and control if the fuchsia seems ill.
- Search for common infestations such as sucking insects called aphids and scales. Saturate the fuchsia plant with horticultural oil to control infestations.
- Remove and destroy affected plant parts when disease or infestations occur. Improve circulation by thinning the plant and watering soil directly without overhead sprinkling as standing water encourages fungal disease. Destroy and replace severely diseased fuchsias.
