I have just stumbled on an excellent website on fuchsias, particularly very detailed info on how to take cuttings, this just for those who aren't experiences "cutting takers", like me.image

    Sue that's a brilliant website! If only I had Fucshias (tricky word to spell, might be wrong). Maybe I will buy one, might as well as I seem to be buying everything at the moment, what Fucshias would you recommend? image

    Ryan, that's a difficult one to anwser, there are so many! Have a look on the site under Fuchsia Gallery and click through the suggestions on the left hand side or under A-Z.

    Here another great website:

    My search through Google is leading me from one thing to another, I think I'm going nuts!image

    Trouble is, all the best ones with the greatest choice are in the UK, very frustrating, but at least I can get some ideas

    Ryan - for an upright fuchsia try Checkerboard and for a basket fuchsia try Puts Folly image

    Fuchsia voodoo is nice. flowers around 5 cm across in stunning purple and pink. was lovely in the baskets last year but didnt make it though the winter (i should have potted them up to overwinter earlier i guess. still new to gardening but learning)



    have some climbing fuchsias ordered this year also. cant wait to get them.
