Plant Information

Top Tips

Planting advice for fuchsia arborescens:

Plant outdoors in a fertile soil with protection from cold, drying winds and frost. Plants can withstand temperatures down to -5°C (23°F). but are best grown as a conservatory plant or left outside for the summer and brought inside for winter.

  • On receipt, unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • Pot up plugs and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. Alternatively, plant them where they are to flower when all risk of frost has passed.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.

 

Aftercare advice for fuchsia tree:

  • If growth is poor, feed once a year in spring with a general-purpose fertiliser such as Fish, Blood and Bone.
  • After planting, water regularly in the coming spring and summer to aid establishment.
  • Once established they should only need the occasional soak during hot summers.
  • Mulch annually with organic matter, such as garden compost or well-rotted manure
