I have a Orange King Fuchsia and I would like to keep it for another year.

Is it best to take cuttings from my plant now, or over winter it in my conservatory and then take the cuttings off that in the spring.

The same goes for a Lovely Geranium I have.

I can take cuttings easily by the water method but I am a bit of a novice. Any advice would be appreciated.

I bought a small tree fuchsia called Pattie Sue this year and has grown lovely. It is a shame to let it die over the winter and so I wonder if I can keep it alive for it to flourish next year.

I don't have a green house but I have a conservatory. The conservatory does have a radiator in it but sadly with the cost of heating might not be used a lot.

The fuchsia is in a medium size pot about 12 inches accross.

Any advice will be much appreciated.
