I’ve always liked Fuchsia’s, my parents always had them in their garden. I also like the Begonia (believe it or not) and that is the one with the larger flowers and seems more likely to win at the shows. I came across some lovely looking double Fuchsia’s, and decided to order some.
I received one called"Deep Purple" just before i went away. And have now ordered a couple of other named Fuchsia’s.
There are Fuchsia classes in the shows. There is also a stand that would have to have at least 3 different types of flowering plant -not sure if it would be too big a stand for me to do, thinking about it for another year in the future. I think that Fuchsia’s would probably be ok outside, need to find out those details now. I think they would look nice on the stand with the Begonias, and possibly Delphiniums, which i did get 2 plants to try at the start of the season. They were potted from a 5" to a 7" pot, and i have got some 10 litre pots to pot them into next year to see how they look (and if i will be able to deal with that size pot at the show ground onto the staging) It is fun planning for possibilities for future shows. The most difficult bit is transporting everything to the show ground – the cost to hire a van!! and if i need to be at the show ground, someone else to drive. All good fun!
