Wonderful Fuchsia, Bloomer! Is it a hardy Fuchsia? It's certainly has lots of flowers! :-))

Thank you Karen,Ba ,Shirley and Balcony..and yes,it is very hardy.I've had it approx 13 years..I have a few more ,which I hope will be as good as the parent in time :o)

13 years is a long time to keep a Fuchsia! Is it the original plant or is it from a cutting at some time?

It was a gift as a cutting,Balcony..and it's been in the same place all the time..I'm amazed it's kept going too ! :o) I give it a good mulch for winter,and feed in late spring,and that's it..Quite slow to get going,but once it does,it romps away..I think a lot of Fuchsia's tend to flower a bit later than other plants..they do in my garden,anyway..

Lovely compact one Bloomer and so may flowers, I have several Mrs Popperwell a hardy variety too, I cut them back early spring and they stay relatively tidy but not as neat as yours! - lovely :o)

Lol.Dawn..I had a look on Google..I seem to have the page to myself..or the Fuchsia does ! :o)

Thanks Neena..I usually wait till a bit later to cut mine back..we might more prone to frost here,than in Wales,but that could be me being pessimistic :o)

Thanks Julia,I think so too :o)
