The Fuchsia was originally from Brazil, and in 1939 the ‘Lady Boothby’ was bred from the original and was given its name from the founder of the British Fuchsia Society. Stunning and vibrant pink and purple flowers develop from the red stems and are vigorous and strong climbers. With a little support these will climb arches, walls, and fences vigorously and will repeat this year after year. They are also edible, and the vibrant flowers can be used in salads, as garnish and can even be crystallised for deserts and cakes. For more details about edible flowers click here. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 90cm.

Pot up Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby' using well drained compost such as John Innes No.3, and grow on in warm, frost-free conditions. Pinch out the growing tips while fuchsia plants are still small to promote bushier growth and more flowers. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10 day period, before planting them in their final positions in patio containers and sunny or semi shaded borders. Choose a site where they are protected from cold winds over winter. Provide a sturdy support, such as a plant climbing frame or trellis, to support the long stems of climbing fuchsias as they grow.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced, and tie the stems to their supports with twine or soft plant ties. Apply a deep bark mulch around the base of hardy fuchsias in
