My 2011 Fuchsias


By Scotkat


This year I lost all my fuchsias due to our long cold winter.

I had many nice new fuchias 2010 adn I had taken many cuttings and lost them all.

I got interested in heaucheras so decided not to have so many fuchias.

But I did find myself buy a fuchsia and its not so easy when you have been hooked on fuchias to stop your self from buying a new on.

I now have a new small collection once again and they are looking nice and lush with all this spell of rain we have had.

looking forward to seeing them Kath. I have one new one as well, but I did manage to keep one...can't remember now what it was called..will have to look it up. It must be very hardy...they were all supposed to be hardy of course. I noticed on my last walk that a lovely big hawkshead in a garden nearby has survived and is starting to flower. I lost my little one, but I think I shall try again....must put that on my shopping list! :))

Good Morning Scotkat,

Dear Scotkat

First of all, welcome to GOY.
I love this place, and every GOY friend.
Fuchsias are natural from my little place in this world, south Brazil - Rio Grande do Sul.
Actually fuchsias are the flower symbol of our state .
However they are only common to the coldest areas, up in the hills I would say.

The botanical garden from Porto Alegre - the state capital, can't grow fuchsias in its natural habitat.
With the help of the AAJB - Association of Botanical Garden friends - we will build a greenhouse to reproduce the cold temperatures to which the fuchsias are used.

You, in UK, have the most beautiful species.

Your fuchsias are lovely,
