Saturated in colour, these double blooms are sure to impress. Dark purple skirts with rich, pink sepals. Fuchsia ‘Dark Eyes’ holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for great performance. It is semi trailing and lovely and bushy.
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 and add some fertiliser. You will need to keep them moist during their active growth.
Fuchsias main flowering is in late spring and summer. It is a good idea to remove spent flowers and add a little fertiliser once this main flush has finished, encouraging a second round of flowers in autumn.
