2 comments


Well after there winter sleep in the garage I brought the fuchsias indoors last week and the sun has worked its magic and put colour into there cheeks. All the shoots where white/cream in garage but as you can see they did alright. Only lost one.
Will need to have a trimming session on the various cuttings but that initself will generate more cuttings.

Lifted and potted down, cut back and kept in garage till last week.

Last years cuttings, back ones from May? front July. Need work!!

This tray taken in November when the summer cuttings started to bolt.

My first attemt at standards not great, they also bolted and some shoots burnt? too hot in conservatory????
Got a bit leggy.


still try again when I trim back.
Hope everyone has had the same success.

It's great to see your fuchsias doing so well. I lost one or two, but it's because I let them go too dry. Next year I'm thinking of overwintering them in the attick. I'll be able to keep an eye on them there.
I grew some standards once. I hope you'll try again.
