Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Apply a deep bark mulch around the base of hardy fuchsias in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold.
  • Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for fuchsias:

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you canít 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 theyíll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • 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 donít like to be left in standing water.
  • When established, plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow - remember to protect tender plants from late frosts.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
  • Remember that plants are frost tender and should be protected from frost at all times.


Aftercare Advice for fuchsias:

  • When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise your plant to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10-day period, before planting into its final positions in patio containers and sunny or semi shaded borders.
  • Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil, with shelter from the wind. In containers, use a John Innes No 3 based compost.
  • When planting in the ground, plant the base of the stem 5cm below the soil surface and provide a deep winter mulch and shelter from the wind.
  • Water fuchsia plants sufficiently to keep the compost moist but not waterlogged and do not leave plants standing in water.
  • Fuchsias prefer shade for the hottest part of the day.
  • A balanced, liquid fertiliser used in summer encourages better blooms over a long flowering period

 

Pruning Advice for hardy fuchsias:

  • When in active growth, you can pinch out tips to increase the potential number of blooms, although this will delay actual flowering - flowers usually open six to eight weeks after you finish stopping.
  • Prune stems back to a low permanent framework in spring.
