Plant details

Deadhead regularly to ensure it flowers throughout the summer. Feed with a liquid fertilser every two weeks during the growing season. It is suitable for planting in a container or a basket, and will make an excellent standard. Bring it indoors over winter and keep the soil just moist. Propagate by softwood cuttings in any season.

Annabel5

Fuchsia 'Annabel' was the very first fuchsia that I bought and grew. It is an extremely pretty fuchsia and I would recommend it to anyone. It is a light pink colour and if re-potted reguarly can grow to a good size.
