Thank you for your question, Patte.  Are your fuchsias annual (standard) or perennial (hardy) varieties?  If you didn't retain the tag, you can tell which by examining the stems.  Standard varieties are fleshy, and bend easily.  Hardy varieties have woody stems that don't bend easily and look as though they are covered with a thin bark.  Once you determine which you have, the following article will provide care advice:
