The Marbeller™ range of Giant trailing Fuchsias has some of the largest Fuchsia flowers avaialble.  Giant Fuchsias are fantastic value as they grow quickly and vigorously.  To fill a 12" or 30cm hanging basket you will only need 3 plugs.  If using in mixed baskets or tubs, plant with other vigorous trailers such as Surfinias®, Lobelia or Helichrysum to prevent them from dominating the basket.

These Fuchsia plugs will need potting on into a 9 or 10cm pot and growing on in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill.  They can also be planted straight into hanging baskets as long as the baskets are kept in the warm.  They need to be kept at a minimum of 7 degrees celsius.  We recommend that you keep your plug plants quite dry in the early stages of growing to encourage root growth.  However it is very important not to let them dry out completely!  The compost should be kept moist, not waterlogged, but also not dry and dusty.  

Once the risk of frost has passed your Fuchsias can be planted in the garden.  Fuchsias prefer a position in sun or partial shade.  Feed them weekly when they are in flower with a good quality multipurpose feed.  Water regularly to prevent them from drying out.  Watering is best done in the morning or evening instead of when the sun is at its strongest, to prevent the leaves from being scorched.  Remove faded flowers before they go to seed to encourage new flower growth.
