I have 3 very healthy, but young 'Miss California' fuchsias in a very large (24") hanging basket.
It was originally 1 plant back in April/May, that I divided mid-summer as it was getting too large for the container it was planted in. They have performed admirably & rate as keepers.
I'd love to overwinter all 3, but have no greenhouse and my garage freezes. Not really anywhere to keep them in the dark as Ed Hume has often suggested. So is there an alternative?
Any methods known of &/or used that might ensure their continuation of life?
Could the 3 plants be potted up & kept indoors under grow lights? Will bright light at an east window work?
Temps: indoors usually about 62° during the winter unless we get the woodstove going...
A Begonia boliviensis will join them for company, or at least that's the game plan.
what to do, what to do?
