Fuchsia 'Fairy Blue'

Half-hardy Perennial

 Customer Review Rating
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.

Culinary information: Add the beautiful coloured flowers to salads, crystallise them for a sweet garnish or add them to jellies for an extra splash of colour. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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.

    I received my plug plants quickly, and all were healthy and in good condition. They have all grown well, and the colours of the flowers are beautiful - I have shared them around my friends and family and everyone is thrilled with the results. Thank you!
