My Baby Standard Fuchsias


By Scotkat


I have decided to try my hand again at growing standard fuchsia whips.

They are so easy to grow start with a 3 leaf or you can use 2.

Then pot them up in a 3”pot with a small cane.

I have some spare canes that come with my orchids so I use them but you can use anything.

Then keep them straight tying against cane and grow on till required height before you make head.

Thought I should update you with some more photos of some of my fuchsias .All we need now is heat to help them grow.

I repotted this one today Golden Swingtime

Doing pretty well Scotkat. I have some Waltz Jubleteen coming along about the same height. One for the border. One lined up to Bonzai, and one to try to be a standard. I like them as the flowers point upwards.
