Jingle Bells is an easy care hardy fuchsia. It will grow in a container, with potting soil. It will also thrive in a garden, as long as it is planted in August, and given a bit of protection (mulch) the first year.

As Jingle Bells Fuchsia is a hardy perennial, I wait at least a year to fertilize it.

It will blossom until the first frost, and if kept indoors, with weekly misting, it will bloom all year.
