Fuschia

Posted: 08/10/2013 at 12:20

I cut all mine back by a third and strip all the leaves and flowers , if they are kept above 5 degrees they will start to shoot over winter.I do this every year with great success, in the spring there is plenty of growth to take new cuttings. Also you can start pinching out earlier giving you a much bigger plant.

Fuschias with very few flowers

I grow a lot of Fuchsias and have done for many years,but this year has been the worst that I can remember for lack of flowers,I think it may be because of the extreme heat we have suffered.I would leave your Fuchsia till next spring and when it shows signs of new growth cut it back to about 6 inches from the ground.

I grow lots of Fuchias and have done for years but this year is theworst I can remember for a lack of flowers. I do believe the reason is the extreme heat we have been suffering.I have fuchsias in full sun,some in full shade and some in partial shade and they have all suffered.The other thing is those that are flowering are about a month behind normal.Dont discard them as I am sure they will come again next year.

I have grown lots of Fuchias for many years and this has been one of the worst I can remember for lack of flowers,living in the southeast I can only put it down to the heat we have suffered over the past months.Those I have kept in the shade have been better but still not as good as they should be.I just hope for better conditions next year and they get back to normal.

Years ago I remember my parents having blue plants and white ones along the front of their borders. They only grew to about 4 inches high and they looked really pretty.It seemed the fashion at the time as many other people had them.Can anyone remember what they were as her indoors is driving me mad to plant them next year.
