I want to put some hardy fuchsias in this year, when would be the best time and wht ones?



Hardy fuchsias can be planted, depending on ground conditions, up to about the middle/end of July so they can settle themselves in before winter. As regards varieties...its all down to personal preference....if you google you will find many companies who sell a wide range of varieties....try the Duchy of Cornwall site....they have lots...there are the small dainty types and the more colourful, "blowsy" types....the choice is yours.......Enjoy your search!!!

Some are hardier than others. So choose carefully.

I'd recommend 'Madam Cornelissen' 'Tom Thumb', 'Mrs. Popple', 'Alice Holt'. Also check out Fuchsia magellenica 'Riccartonii versicolour' or F. molinae 'Sharpitor' - these have the typical "species" type flowers, being long and narrow, but the leaves are coloured greyish green with pink parts too - quite striking, but a bit of a messy grower, needs a bit of room.

Annabel is a good hardy one as well.

Hi, One that has quite large flowers but has lots of hardiness awards is "Garden News" one of my favourite hardies.
