    The three of them won't survive in a pot together.
    The fuchsia is the most likely to survive  on its own but it will need feeding.
    The sunflowers need a large container or putting in the ground.
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • I'd put the sunflowers in a large pot together (if they're in small pots they dry out very fast). Give them as much access to the sun as possible. Re-potting them won't harm them.

    I'd put the sunflowers in the ground, then they have a chance of reaching their full height, particularly if they are 'giant' sunflowers
  • Thank you.😁
