Fuchsias now growing in Glamis Castle Glasshouse


By Scotkat


I now have got a good collection growing in the glasshouse.

Tuesday I tied up the whips again.

And today I took up more cuttings for them along with shanghai heucheras out of my garden and repotted some more fuchsias .

Say hello to Phyllis one of our standard whips

Its all my pleasure to get my own fuchsias growing to give everyone pleasure at Glamis .

Well done Kath. How is your back? I have my son staying with me at the moment so day trips are on hold.

Thank you Linda.

This was not sore on my back .

But have to say the pain now is not as sore .

But now I have to try to move more without protecting my back.

Thank you for asking.
