Blooming heat made it very uncomfortable . Is,nt it odd how our climate fluctuates between two extremes?. Got my two baskets planted up, and last years Fuchsias occupied the other 4. More Fuchsia cuttings taken this morning. Have 12 cuttings for future use. Pansy and Petunia,s used in baskets and next year i will be increasing both from seed as i was disappointed in not having enough for two more baskets. Anyway me hartys here,s some mor snaps. Take care Tony

Your Forest Flame looks great! I posted a while ago about mine suddenly losing all the pink leaves and looking rather sad. I've no new shoots, and yours look so bright and colourful - love it on the last photo, just a little reddish spot in the yellowish-green leaves. Ah, I am jealous. And you seem to have decent weather. Double jealous!

Hi Jagienka Sorry to hear about your Forrest flame. My knowledge of the Plant is based on what members of this site have kindley advised me. I used ericatius compost, I never use tap water(my water butt supplies the water) and I feed it once a fortnight. Next spring I intened to devide it to produce a second plant but its such a nice plant I could not face doing it this year. I am also advised that they do not like a windy position. The grow on you site has lots of good gardeners and I am sure you will receive sound advice when needed. Will always be here for advice. Take care Tony
