I planted a fuschia in the garden in June. It has done well, has not grown too big although it flowers a lot. I wonder if I could dig it up and bring inside for the winter, since it isn't very big. Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks for any info.

I think you can. Just give it the right amout of light.

I would definitely try it.
Keep it in as sunny a spot as you can, even though fuchsias like shade outdoors. This will ensure that it's getting enough light.
However, you do know that fuchsias need to be pruned back in the fall?
Or, do you plan to do what I do here, which is only lightly prune, and let the plant grow and bloom? I never cut mine all the way back to sticks. Of course, mine lives outside year round.
But with care I think you can mimic outdoor conditions. Be sure to mist it so it doesn't dry out. Good luck and keep me posted !

I planted a fuschia this spring. Are NC winters enough to make it neccessary to bring them indoors here? Or not.
