Loosing flowers a lot
I got a fuchsias tree plant for a present and I put it in a shaded spot in the yard but moved it up to the deck where it would get more shade. It has been very warm here ever since 80-90's and it has been loosing a lot of it's flowers. I moved it again today so that it would be in a cooler spot but I am wondering if maybe I should put it indoors till the weather gets cooler? I live in Vancouver, WA other than loosing it's flowers it looks fine and I have keep it watered. Is this normal for it?

Hi,

Thanks for writing. Fuchsias do tend to drop their flowers when they're stressed. The heat may be causing part of it --- as might moving the plant from spot to spot. I'd pick one spot for it and leave it there. Let the plant rest during the hot spell; it should start to bloom well again once the heatwave passes.
