Thank you Brumbull. A twisted stem two variety sounds really lovely, it will be interesting to see how you  get on.

I will use a thin cane to support it for now.

I'm feeling so enthused that I will try to take some cuttings from my fuchsia and try to grow more standards.

Morning all. There are some great pics of Beechgrove behind the scenes on their facebook page.

See if I can drum up some energy to get out and finish mulching and feeding the rest of my pots this morning.

LL I am very jealous your garden looks wonderful.

Andy I bought the same fuchsia from Morrisons to grow a standard.

Brum you say about using a straight stake- but what should I do whilst they are so small in 3 inch pots please?

What plant is this please?

Berghill- how lovely to have been married 44 years. I've been divorced three times and always envy people who find someone and then spend years and years happily together.

Still I'm happy that the weather seems to have changed at last
