They're Petunia Summer Classic, I ordered 60 medium plugs to go into flower pouches which hang on a timber framework I built at the front of the house.

The unsightly council bins sit behind the frame, so you can't see them from the street! Flower pouches up the sides and across the top, and a Jasmine growing up some trellis in the middle.

It looks nice when the summer weather is kind, but didn't really reach its full potential last year, with all the rain and all.

Fingers crossed for this year!

That sounds really lovely Terry  As Verdun says they will soon catch up - lets hope they send them well packed next time

Kath - I have never tried to do it before  All I did was to gently wind 2 of my newly rooted cuttings together and pot them up. I will put a stick in soon to tie the fuchsia to as it grows and just keep gently winding the stems together.Just an experiment really

Brumbull - I do hope you don't think I have hijacked your challenge -sorry .It just appealed to me knowing I had some fuchsias I could practice on. I am sure- after seeing your beautiful fuchsias- that you will be far more successful than me
