Pot up plugs in 9cm pots and grow them on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to transplant into final containers or baskets. Pinch out the growing points where stems have more than 2 sets of leaves, while the plants are still small. This will encourage the plants to produce more stems, making a bushier plant with more flowers. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise fuchsia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Choose a sunny or semi shaded site for their final position.

  1. October Wonders

    By TREVOR STAMMERS 15-10-2014

    I have had this collection from van meuwan for 3 years now, always arrive in good condition and size. This year they bloomed even earlier and were unbelievable ( had 2 of each variety in one huge basket ) I took extra care in September to de-head and fed well and they have come back even larger and full of bloom ! and it is now well into October. My only advice is use professional compost, I have run my own comparison trials and there is a huge difference.
