I agree with much of what Verdun says, but in my experience, S.arundicea do not recover from cutting back and neither do S.tennuissima.

This may be climatic [ almost typed climactic then! ]

Growing Fushcias in pots

The size of the pot needed, depends on the size of the plant.

Small plants should start in small pots, then as plants get bigger, they go into larger pots.

Is commercially bought blood fish and bone fertilise "organic"

Are there roots coming out of the bottom of the pot?

Hi all.

Windy and wet, I suppose more than 2 gardening days would be too much to ask for.

Have fun.
