I've had better luck with the softwood cuttings in other plants than fuchsia. Use a sterile non-soil potting mix and a rooting hormone that you dip the newly cut stem into. You also can sow fuchsia seeds in the spring keeping the temp. at 15-24 degrees C.
Ha! I put the question out there and walked away until now - thanks Jacks! I'm afraid the fuscias are not happy with me - I was hoping they'd bloom profusely, but first I over watered, then I under watered - so I'll be happy if there's anything to keep inside once it gets cold, but I'll give it a whirl...
In the meantime, you'll be happy to know that the mini yellow rose bush that you all sent for my birthday is loving life in the garden and blooming non-stop next to dahlias and a daphne bush. I think of the board every time I look at it...

I heard a story about them on NPR, seed company with an incredible American history, now struggling a bit. I ordered some seeds that I haven't seen anywhere else, can't wait!
