Another beautiful basket, Clarice! I love these flowers! These look like Fuchsia Swingtime. I also have one in one of these in my baskets.

This basket of fuchsias keeps coming back year after year...

Really? That's very nice, Clarice!!!!
So, you bring the basket indoors over winter, right?
Do you water it in winter or keep it dry?

Fuchsias should be kept pretty dry over winter. They won't stand for wet, cold soil during the cold period. If they aren't hardy then they will need some protection from frost during the winter. They don't need heat though. Just dry & cold. You can cut back this year's growth by at least half so as to occupy less space & make it easier to keep them.

My 5 hanging baskets of Fuchsias survived the winter outside on my balcony. I just cut them back by 50% & stored them in the driest, most protected corner with a few sheets of newspaper covering them & almost all the plants survived.

Thank you very much for the tip, Balcony!
I'll follow the instruction.
I have only 1 fuchsia (dwarf, hardy) planted in the ground last year, and it's still very tiny and short. It hasn't flowered much this year but I like it and don't want to loose it.
Thank you again Balcony, I appreciate your kindness :)

You're welcome & I hope your Fuchsia not only survives but also flourishes!
