Rangitikei, New Zealand
Two questions I would like to ask. First ....I spotted a large fuchsia shrub in a neighbour's garden yesterday, which had a small delicate flower ...plain pale pink with long stamens. Can I take a cutting from this shrub while it is flowering, & do I just cut anywhere? Second .....we are about to embark upon painting our boundary fences on a quarter acre property. My OH wanted to do them black or midnight blue, but I am not sure that these very dark colours will look good with our pale-coloured weatherboard house (I reside in NZ). My OH does not like the idea of white or cream, & I don't like green fences. The trims on our house are painted in smokey-turquoise & a mulberry. Any suggestions?
