how long fuchsia take to bloom from seed?

Posted: 23/06/2016 at 10:56

How sad to read these answers from gardeners. Growing things from seed is fun. All those fuchsia hybrids were developed by people who didn't think it was too much trouble, they didn't occur naturally. The hybrids and varieties won't seed true but you might get something new and wonderful.

F. procumbens and other species I've tried take very little time to flower from seed. I don't grow the large flowered ones

Now, 4 foot tall already

Are any of these weeds?...or plants?

In the pic with the primula there are leaves and a seedhead of Geum urbanum, wood avens. This is a weed you don't want. Seedhead top left, leaves mid right.

The pink flower in 3 is Lychnis coronaria, not a silene

agree with Dave, cut some old stems right back to base. If you just shorten them to a bud, after a few prunes you have a shapeless blob

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

Could be Hostafan. The leaves don't look like erysimum to me either, though it's that family. I've never had a H. matronalis quite as floriferous as that.

I'll have a look on tomorrow's shopping trip. Do you think they're nettle proof?

agree with Alan, arisaema or similar aroid.

A photo of the flowers and stem might narrow it down a bit. What are the berries at the bottom of? the leaves or the stem. Do they dangle like a bunch of grapes or is it an upright spike. What is the flower like?

Have a look at Arisaema speciosum, see if it's anything like that. Lots of them have the snakey stem
