Dainty fairy-like flowers dance in the breeze, with purple-blue skirts beneath sparkling white sepals. Fuchsia 'Fairy Blue' produces a profusion of blooms throughout summer on bushy, upright stems. This compact half hardy fuchsia is perfect for growing in patio containers and filling gaps in summer borders. Height and spread: 70cm (28"). Supplied as 30mm plugs.

Pot up plugs in 9m 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.
Grow fuchsia plants in a sunny or semi shaded site. Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.

  1. Fuchia Fairy Blue

    By Ann Jordan 29-03-2017

    When my fuchias " Fairy Blue" arrived I thought they looked in very poor condition, however now they are potted up and in the greenhouse they are at last moving. Looking forward to seeing them flower and selling at Birchington Hort. Society for our funds.

  2. First sightings are important

    By Henry Speedie 23-03-2017

    My 10 Fuchsia Fairy Blue plug plants arrived last week in a secure cardboard container with each plant neatly slotted into a separate plastic housing. I was pleasantly surprised at their healthy appearance and root structure. I followed the planting on advice to the letter and located them in an environment that met their immediate needs. These plug plants have been with me around one week and I can report that some of them have just about doubled in size. Each plant is flourishing and I trust that if I continue to give them the attention they require I will be a very happy amateur gardener. In summary, I am in possession of ten healthy plants - the leaves are nice and green - and there is strong evidence of growth.
