It is far too early to plant a Fuchsia out in the garden.
We live just North of Cardiff and had a frost last night.
Most standard ones are the more exotic, tender, big flowered ones that have probably been brought into leaf and flower extremely early by growing them in a heated greenhouse.
It has probably not been hardened off.
Only hardy Fuchsias will survive outside when we are still getting cold nights.
I would not risk it outside until end of May.
It will definitely need to kept in a frost free place over winter.
