hi I have just been given an eggcup sized pot with two very sick looking leaves in it, its from school the little tot said and my mum didnt want it so will you put it in your garden please,and yes she did say please, so I couldnt realy refuse could I. the lollypop stick says Lady Boothby on it, i think it might be a fuchsia looking at the one whole bit left, anybody heard of it, and do you have any suggestions other than the compost heap



Lady Boothby is a fuchsia. It's sold as a "climbing fuchsia" but a better description would be a "leggy fuchsia" as it doesn't twine or have tendrils to support it. It is pretty hardy - mine came through, eventually, after last winter. Try giving it a bit of TLC and watch it improve.
