I've broken the main stem of my fuchsia standard help!

Hello all,

i just thought I would post on here to say a huge thank you to all the great advice I got on saving my fuschia I am happy to say that it re grew and has flowered beautifully the past month. It now has a lovely home in the sheltered part of the garden and as I've kept it in a pot I will be bringing it indoors this winter. 

Thank you all I couldn't have done it without you!

Hello all and thank you for your advice, it is most appreciated. I will dig up the base and put it back in the pot and bring it inside I feel a bit better knowing I haven't fully killed it and with some tlc it can be brought to (maybe half) of it's former glory.

Dovefromabove yes it did have a stake I was told by the lady at the rhs that it was okay to take it outside but keep it away from wind and direct sunlight, but as silver surfer mentioned it is probably still too cold for it...

I've never taken a cutting from a plant before is there a guide on how to do it correctly on here?

Yes I'm afraid so, there was a very thin bit which i think was still connected when it got damaged but my dad came across it first and he broke it off when he couldn't think of anything else to do and put it in water to try to save it ( he doesn't have green fingers I'm afraid)

Hello all I am hooping you can kindly help me, I purchased a fuchsia standard from the rhs show in Cardiff a few days ago, I managed to plant it out in the ground but after just a few days it has broken at the main stem due to heavy wind. Is there any way I can save it I feel dreadful after all the effort that would gone into looking after it to get it to the standard it was ive brought it home and seem to have completely ruined it. Any help would be most appreciated It has just happened today.
