can i grow climbing fuchias in pots



Yes. But beware of the 'climbing' claim, as this is simply a tall growing variety and will not attach itself to the support in any way.

I have grown lots of "Lady Boothby" fuchias in pots as well as in the ground. They are sold as "climbers" but are not, as Volunteer has said.

I found that, as long as I tied them to trellis, they made a really vivid display. I understand that they are supposed to be very hardy but I lost a few last winter and expect I have lost more this year!

I kept two large ones in the greenhouse this year...and they have tiny buds already!
