This seems to be 'Plant of the Year' if GOY is anything to go by :-)

Mine was bargain basement at my local family run nursery, only cost me £1.50, potted it on when I got it home and its doing so well...
Terra hopefully Hywel will advise me....

It's totally hardy so it can be planted out in the garden.

Thanks Andrew ..
Should this fuchsia be planted in the shade ?

My Hawkshead Fuchsia was a freebie this springtime, when I visited a local garden centre. Everyone was given a voucher for a lovely plant for free, and I was able to choose the Hawkshead. That was my only garden centre trip this year, so I was lucky to have the voucher !

I've had my plant in a pot all summer in the shade.

I have two, one in full sun and one that gets a couple of hours of shade each day. Both seem equally happy. I think it also responds to a good feed each year in the spring, plus a soil that doesn't dry out.

Thanks ... in my gardens, providing soil which doesn't dry out is one of the main challenges !

Hi Driad, nice to see you, hows things with you?? hope you realise you were last heard from when your swiss cheese plant had the accident, thought you'd got lost amongst all those tendrils, lol......

Well I 've survived that !
The remnants are going strong .
It's the rest of the jungle ( outside ) causing most probs , Lincs .
