: I have always loved fuschias but until this year have never been able to keep them alive and flowering. I managed to kill them in the first week prior to this. My question is this... I have found informatin on wintering over, but nothing has guided me in repotting, i.e., how will I know it is time/necessary, and is there a better or worse time to try this...

Hi Claudia,
Hope your fuschia is still doing well and thriving. Generally plants need to be repotted once a year if they are in a pot that is 10" or larger. Just look to see if the roots are visible through the drainage hole. If they are visible or coming out of the hole, it's time! If you are fertilizing regularly, you may want to check every 6 months. Just repot in a pot that is 2" larger than the pot you now have.

Best of luck,
