Wintering in California
Ok, I have read many of the posts in this forum about wintering, etc. However, I live in Southern California and I have a fuchsia that doesn't seem to know that winter is approaching. Just in the last month or so it has been growing like gangbusters. It has at least 10 inches of new growth with lots of new buds. I can't bring myself to cut off all the beautiful flowers and new growth. I've had this plant for about 5 months and this is the most growth it has had.
I lived in Portugal for 2 years and had a planter box full of fuchsias that I only cut back when the branches looked bad and it grew all year round. So I am not sure what to do with this one. I am thinking maybe I should just leave it until December and see if it slows down then. I don't have to worry much about frost here, so do I even need to cut it back severely?
Any advice would be appreciated, especially anyone familiar with the weather here in California.
