New to babyplants for 2017! A bush fuchsia with beautiful double flowers. Ideal planted in patio containers or in garden borders. This plant will lose its leaves over the winter, and should regrow from the base the following spring.
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 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.
Hardy Fuchsias should survive most British winters. Before the frost start, cut the plant down to 6" or 15cm and put a mulch around it.
