Wintering a standard fuchsia

Thank u for replying .

I've chked label and it's a lambada..

I have a porch and garage... Tho obvously the garage doesn't get much light, not sure if it will need that if dormant? - sorry very new to gardening!!

I take it that it may poss survive if I put it in the porch and cover the pot with some fleece? Is there anything else I could do to increase its chances of survival ?

Wintering a standard fuchsia

I am very new to gardening and need some advice pls, it will be really appreciated!

This summer I brought a lovely standard fuchsia, having chked the label it states  that winter protection is needed.

I have absolutely no idea how or even when to do this?

Do I cover the pot, stem or bush (top) part or all three? Do I have to bring it under cover/inside. I have no greenhouse or shed... Do I wait for the flowers/leaves to drop and does it need pruning before winter?

sorry about all the questions, I have tried a googling this but can't find a definitive answer..
