Definately keep them frost free to avoid disapointment.  The hardy plant will only be hardy once it get more mature and even then will most likely need to have some protection if left outside.  I have a large hardy which is growing on my patio and it is fleeced over winter once the old foliage is cut back.  It bounces back every year to give a fine display.

Don't do it - keep them nice and warm, when i lived in my old house I had over 100 different fushias. Like already said a hardy fushia needs a summer season to establish itself. However the frost can still get them depending on where you live

As the other posters say, do not plant outside untill all danger of frost is past. The term hardy as applied to Fuchsias causes some confusion. Frost will kill the foilage of all Fuchsias. The difference with hardy varietys is that the roots will usually survive and send out new shoots the following spring

Let's not get carried away folks. My neighbour has an evergreen Fuchsia hedge. :lol: Hardy is hardy to a few degrees of freezing.

Other wise most can be overwintered with some form of protection.
