Fuschia Bush

Got a nice Fuschia bush but it's in a pretty shady part of the garden and I would like to move it. I pruned it well back last year and it is not showing any signs of new shoots. Would it be too late to dig it up and move it??

Go ahead. Fuschias don't mind being disturbed. We are just about the same latitude, so fuschias actually are happy in full sun or part shade.

RE: Fuschia Bush

With all the cold and dull winter we've had Stuvspec,
you're not alone, they won't shoot from under the soil until the soil warms up a bit more.

Try to dig it up in a clump, with as little root disturbance as possible. Any long old tap roots can be removed, leaving as many of the finer white roots as possible. Plant in the new position a bit deeper than it is now and keep soil moist if we don't have any rain - Kath :)
