In hot summer months, check your fuchsia several times a week to prevent Fuchsias growing in clay and wood containers will dry out faster than in plastic containers as the clay and wood are more porous.

Fuchsias should be planted 4 to 6 inches deep. Amend the soil with compost before planting to improve drainage and the composition of the soil. Fuchsias thrive in well-drained soil rich with organic matter.

Container plants can be surrounded by other heat tolerant plants to protect the fuchsia's pot from the direct sun. If your fuchsia is in a container, use a clay or wood pot as plastic pots tend to heat faster than other materials.

Fuchsia planted in partial sun will need a heavy layer of mulch to keep the roots cool. Plants with too much sun will tend to be smaller and have fewer flowers. Plant your fuchsia in dappled shade. Fuchsia flowers will attract bees and butterflies to your garden from late summer to first frost.
