Fuschias with very few flowers

Posted: 18/09/2013 at 15:43

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.

Is there a Lobelia that only grows small as the lobelia I  currently have is about 12 inches long.

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.

Make sure you remove them from the plant as it will stop flowering if left on.
