Hi Rod,

Best to move fuchsias when in dormancy and leafless, a little later in the year. Cut back well, and take care not to damage the roots. Place in a hole big enough to accommodate spreading roots, and water in well.

It ma be worth taking some softwood cuttings now as an insurance policy in case the plant doesn’t respond well to the move. Take soft, non-flowering shoots, remove lower leaves and put into pots of sandy compost. Water in with a fungicide, cover with a plastic bag, and place somewhere shady. These should root and give you back up should you need it!

Remember to add to your ‘plants I have’ list to receive regular care instructions: Fuchsia 'Mrs Popple'.

Hope this helps.
