You can’t help but think of ballerinas when you look at these blooms. The fully double flowers are big and abundant on this trailing variety.
The flowers open freely for a long period over the lush green leaves. Fuchsia blooms are like pretty dancers, in fancy skirts and sway gracefully in the breeze.
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.
