Message: I bought a fushia that was in a tiny container and transplanted into a plastic hanging basket w/o drainage holes. I used two inches of rocks at the bottom and potting soil. I insytalled a drip irrigation system and set it to water twice daily for 30 minutes each time. The plant was soggy and the dirt stunk so I took the plant out and got rid of the dirt, poked holes in the planter and replaced the potting soil and replanted attatching a plastic drip tray to the planter. Now my plant looks droopy. I have the plant in a shaddy location. Is it a lost cause, or can I save it?

Message: This can be done at any time. Prepare a hole the same size as the pot. Remove the plant, loosen the roots on the outside of the pot and place in hole. Firm soil around plant and water.

Message: I bought a standard Fuchsia which has flowered well this summer. For over-wintering do I cut it back like with normal ones? If so how much do I cut it back by?

Message: Lynne, I'm no fuchsia expert but with most plants, lack of blooms is due to overfeeding � getting the plant a little 'hungry' tricks it into thinking it needs to work harder on the flowers. Hth :)
