hi there,
i just bought some fuchsias from a nursery in the hopes that i might be able to work with them over the next year or so.

looking on the internet, however, i'm unsure about how to translate the four season-oriented instructions for bonsai into two seasons for the fuchsia--I am in Western rains alot...LOL

i'm keeping the fuchsias indoors or in my small greenhouse...trying to figure out heating situation for it... during the winter.

thanks for your help.

I don't know what zone I'm in...usually it's 8.

Fuchsias are a PITA because while they're great in the summer, they need to be trimmed right back ( secondary or at least tertiary twigs in the fall, and allowed to go down to 40 F. for a few winter mos. But I love them too, so I suggest going to...
because she knows what she's doing!
