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.
Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.

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

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

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.
Pleased with my order
