Fuchia sale


Hello gardeners,
Just got home from the annual fuchia society sale. I am thrilled to be able to plant them immediately and leave them out, instead of waiting for the freezing weather to pass. The ones I REALLY wanted were scooped up already but I got some beauties.

I only have 1 Fuchsia which I over wintered in a shed. It is now outside but I have been wrapping it up at night to protect the new shoots from the cold nights we have been having.

I hope we don't have any late frosts to spoil your fuchsias. Sorry to sound like the prophet of doom lol .... but it's wise to keep an eye out for cold nights at this time of year.
I have lots of fuchsias. I hope you will show us some photos of yours when they flower :o))

San...may-be because it was so very cold, fleece wasn't enough? In the shed, I stood mine on cardboard and made a cardboard shell around the whole pot to try and keep the cold off it. Some stems have died off but there are tiny shoots on the others. I put it outside for the daytime warmth to help them along.

Sorry julie ~ we seem to have hi-jacked your blog. :o)
