 Customer Rating

This collection of outstanding hardy fuchsias makes a colourful addition to containers and borders. Compact and bushy, they will flower non-stop from early summer to autumn, growing in stature with the passing years. Height and spread: 90cm (36").

  • Collection comprises:
  • Fuchsia 'Shrimp Cocktail' - A fusion of marbled hot pink petals with a candy blush; each bloom totally unique and almost luminous against the dark foliage.
  • Fuchsia 'Dollar Princess' - This upright bushy RHS AGM variety bears a profusion of double purple blooms with contrasting cerise pink sepals.
  • Fuchsia 'Delta's Sarah' - A beautiful bush variety that produces a succession of supremely weather resistant, unusual coloured blue flowers, up 6cm (2½") in diameter.

Pot up hardy fuchsias using well drained compost such as John Innes No.3, and grow on in warm, frost-free conditions. Pinch out the growing tips while fuchsia plants are still small to promote bushier growth and more flowers. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10 day period, before planting them in their final positions in patio containers and sunny or semi shaded borders.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Apply a deep bark mulch around the base of hardy fuchsias in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold. Prune stems back to a low permanent framework in spring.

  2. Fabulous T & M

    By Charlie Millar 24-05-2016

    We've always bought T&M veg seeds from my local garden centre, but this is the first year we've used their online service, and had seeds, postiplugs and small plants sent in the post. The whole experience has been nothing short of outstandingly impressive..... well designed website, good email contact, ingenious posting and packing methods, ensuring that the small plants arrive in perfect nick. Everything has been given a great start. Weeny fuschia plugs that heralded the start of the growing season are now about to bloom...... and fingers crossed for the giant giant tomatoes......
