Last year was a disaster, dont know if it was the weather or that horrible Verve compost I used, but this year has been fantastic.

Looking good N
What compost did you use this time

They are looking beautiful.  Mine have only just started flowering but the signs are good.  Could be  both weather and compost that have made the difference.

Where are you going to eat outside now

Used Jacks magic from homebase, bit more expensive but really good stuff.

They look wonderfully abundant nodlisab.  Fabulous. 

I bought new ones last year but have been a dead loss.  I had thought it was my compost which seemed lifeless but have come to conclusion that it was poor care of the plants before I bought them.  You know the thing, they look great when you buy them but for ever after they put on no new growth and just seem to have done themselves out.  Poor roots as well.

Hi All

I personnally dont grow Fuchsia`s, but here is a little tip

Fuchsia`s close their pores later on in the day and dont absorb water its best to water them in the morning so they are not sitting in soggy soil overnight which can lead to root problems and die back

Now I didn't know that - thanks buddyboy. I like / prefer to water in the morning but never can get out of my snug bed early enough. Will make an effort to water fuschia before work   . Everything blooms earlier daaaawn safth than ooop  north
