Staking standard fuchsias and the like

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 06:57

ive not done a great job of staking my standard fuchsia given it's got a lean and I've just spotted I've damaged some bark.   a search online suggests a single stake but talking to Artjak the other day and she suggested crossing stakes (actually for another plant).    Cant seem to find any pictures of this or advice articles.  Can someone direct me? How do you stake your standards?

They are supposed to be Astrantia Major Roma. So not just a named variety but a restricted one.  They were bare root in Feb, not now.  I just mean it's their first season. Sorry to confuse. Happy to wait and see. The whole border has a lot do maturing to do.  But a bit irritated if they are not what they should have been.

You laugh, but actually dawned on me that might be out and my phone, although supposed to do internet, is rubbish.  So I might be texting Dove to find out the verdict! Happy for you guys to make the decision and let me know if I'm not about

Good point about Panda.  I've just PMed her, in case she's intending to buy ticket tonight or something.

Poor you and your garage, TBird!  Hope no damage?

i wouldn't be against postponing. It would indeed be very disappointing to travel all that way only to not see much. And the roads will probably be yuck. Plus, logisics are all getting bit clumsy.  I'm out the night before at step mum in law's birthday and friend has asked if can kip at ours.  Which makes it more awkward if I want to leave to have an early night (would still be a late one for me) and more awkward to turf them out in the morning!
