Little fuschia plug plants all thriving
By Sharon Gunason Pottinger 29-08-2015
My plug plants were ordered almost as an afterthpught and when they came, they looked so tiny! But I potted them on and soon had to repot them. In the couese of the season they have grown into respectable looking little shrubs--now my only concern is how hardy-hardy is. I live in the far north of Scotland. The actual temp does not get too low, but the winds off the sea are cold and salty and persistent. I would hate to lose them now.
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am glad to hear that you have been happy with your order. I would suggest to apply a deep bark mulch around the base of the stem. This will protect the roots from cold weather in winter. If you have any further queries at all, you are welcome to contact our Customer Care Team at email@example.com.
No Delta's Sarahs :(
By Liz Sherratt 14-08-2015
I received the 6 little plants in mid-June & potted them up as instructed. They looked pretty healthy, but unfortunately one of the (supposedly) Delta’s Sarahs wilted & died within a few days. I was rather disappointed as it was the unusual colours of the Delta’s Sarah that I particularly liked within the Collection.
The 5 plants have continued to grow healthily, and have come into flower. Unfortunately, as for the other reviewer, none of them are Delta’s Sarah–the plants that were supposed to be Delta’s Sarah & Dollar Princess are ALL Shrimp Cocktail!
I really wanted some NON-pink plants for the border–that’s why I ordered the collection.
I was really looking forward to the variety of colours, & had planned where each was to go in the garden. It is fortunate that I hadn’t just planted them out before they flowered otherwise I would have been even more upset.
It’s vv disappointing–2 months of tender care & anticipation only to find that they’re not what they’re supposed to be.

Not as Described
By Barbara Pitter 26-07-2015
Having bought these three varieties due to their unusual and different colours, I am so disappointed that now that all the plants have flowered, they are all exactly the same light pink. I am tempted to consider whether I was actually really sent the varieties I ordered. Gutted.

My plug of hardy fuchsia has arrived and I have pottedi in small pots but one of the delta Sarah has died just a quick question they too small to pot in borders as they are hardy plants I want them to make good shrubs later should I leave them in pots to grow bigger to plants in borders ? And how long I have to wait for them to plants in borders.
Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear that one of your Fuchsias have failed. If you would like to contact our Customer care team on firstname.lastname@example.org, one of our agents will be able to investigate this matter further. Your Fuchsia plugs are hardy but they will need growing on in frost-free conditions until all risks of frost have passed and they are well developed before planting in borders.

This is very good value. All 9 plants grew well and 8 are in the garden now. I had a good display of flowers from the shrimp cocktail and the army nurse, both of which are lovely colours. I didn't expect flowers in the first autumn. The Delta's Sarah as mentioned above has not come out white and blue but is pale pink with pale lilac. Having planted it in a blue and white boarder this is rather disappointing. It has not flowered much this year, so I will have to see what it is like next year.

Hardy collection - fuschia
By Mike Richardson 30-06-2014
The plugs arrived in June (sooner than expected), with instructions, and were planted indoors - 5 in one trough, 4 in another. Two have lost the will to live (my fault as I've just started the hobby), but the others are now outside, still in troughs, 10" tall, and one has started flowering.
I've ordered other items and no issues so far.
Thank you for your review. I hope we can continue to be of service.
Fuchsia 'Hardy Collection' 3
By anette Ungeheuer 14-09-2012
The plugs were all well rooted and looked fresh. My plants grew nicely, however the Delta's Sarah is not blue at all and the shrimps cocktail not as advertised.
I still give a satisfying rating because I got a wonderful deep purple, velvety plant which I like very much.
Hardy Collection - Fuchsia
By Natasha Hannah-Lyons 25-04-2012
The plugs arrived in great condition with a detailed aftercare booklet. I planted them on but kept them indoors thanks to the greatest british weather but they are doing well and growing into fantastically healthy plants and i cannot wait to plant them out into the garden.
Fuchsia 'Hardy Collection' 3
By Rita Fox 07-08-2011
These 9 jumbo plugs (3 of each variety) arrived in superb condition in May/June and since planting in large pots they have grown to magnificent bushy plants that look stunning all around my patio and by my front door. I am very pleased and as they are hardy I am hoping to keep them for a number of years. Very good value.
