Should I dig up my fuchsias?

BerkleyBerkley Posts: 428
I have a large number (and different varieties) of hardy fuchsias. This year, a significant number of them have failed to flower: the foliage is bright, healthy-looking and apart from the odd nibbled leaf, the plants appear bug and disease free. There are simply no buds .... some of them are next to other hardy fuchsias which are flowering prolifically. All have been kept well-watered and fed ...

Should I remove the non-flowering fuchsias and replace them with new ones next year? Or do you think all may be well next year? Advice would be appreciated!

    I would just leave them. Mine were in tubs and some didn't flower much so are going in the greenhouse come cold weather till next year.

    I would leave them too. Sometimes, they thrive, and other years they don't flower as much. Might be to do with the very dry weather over the summer. If they are hardy Fuchsias, they can take a year or two to settle in.
