Fuchsia 'Lady Thumb' (Hardy) (Large Plant)

Hardy Shrub

Fuchsia 'Lady Thumb' is a neat, compact hardy fuchsia for patio pots, rockeries or mixed perennial borders. The classic flowers are pink and white, and produced in profusion from June and on into the summer. Fuchsias will grow very well in sun or part shade, and are excellent for difficult corners of the patio. Fuchsias require very little maintenance, just some casual deadheading every few days will encourage more blooms. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Plant hardy fuchsias into light, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. When growing in containers, use a quality, well drained compost such as John Innes No.3. Pinch out the growing tips of your fuchsia plants once, to promote bushier growth and more flowers.
Feed and water plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Apply a deep mulch of bark around the base of hardy fuchsias in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold. Take care not to mound mulch up against the main stem. Prune stems back to a low permanent framework in spring.
