Hi, i have seen two helli's that i am thinking of ordering, the ashwood black, and the metallic blue from suttons, my question is simple to anyone growing or having grown these, that is, are the adv pics a true reflection of the plants, is the black, black. I like to hold my plants before i buy so any thoughts or recommendations, regards Phil

Hi, riverside fuchias, sutton on hone (dartford), it's a small nursery, but holds the national collection of fuchias, got a web site but i think its a visiting site only, might be worth a call to see if they can help, only 5 minutes over the QE bridge.
