Fuchsia ‘Sir Matt Busby’ is a trailing variety with huge flowers (to 6cm). The red sepals are held high over the soft pink, almost white skirts.

This Fuchsia is named after Sir Matt Busby of Manchester United football fame; he managed the club between 1945-1969 and again 1970-1971.

Green thumb or brown, Fuchsias will flower for you! Best grown in a filtered light position, where they will bloom for much of the year. The improved breeding on these plants mean they are even easier.

Fuchsias grow best in semi shade to filtered light conditions where they thrive in both pots and gardens.

In the garden, plant Fuchsias into humus rich, moist, well drained soil and be sure to shelter the plants from drying winds and frost. In pots, use a good quality potting mix with added general purpose fertiliser. Make sure you keep them moist while actively growing.

With a little love Fuchsias will flower from spring to autumn. You can dead head them throughout the season to keep the blooms coming.
