Lovely but varying in vigour
By Thomas Wolverson 25-07-2015
Mine weren't too well-treated when I first got them, as I waited too long before planting them out. Three of them seem shy to flower but are growing nicely and look healthy; the others are Bella Rosella, which is flowering generously as well as looking just as vigorous as the others, and Bicentennial, which is looking a bit ropey, almost as though it's making itself sickly by flowering before it's ready. I'm of a mind to pull them off to encourage it to put more energy into foliage before the end of the season.
Overall pretty happy, but the different plants aren't consistent in their habit so this is something to be aware of.

Gorgeous huge blooms
By Carole Parker 15-11-2014
These have been the best fuschias I've ever planted & are still flowering now. I have a greenhouse & would like to try & overwinter them. Could you give me some advice on how to go about this please?

By Lesley Deas 21-10-2014
These plants have been amazing all summer long and are still flowering now. The flowers are huge and very beautiful. I would really appreciate some advice on how to care for these beauties over the winter but I do not have a greenhouse. I mistakenly forgot to label the plants!!! Many thanks

I ordered Giant Fuschia collection just 5 postiplugs.
Made the mistake of not labelling them as I transplanted so got totally mixed up with the variety.
However they have been absolutely GORGEOUS both in hanging baskets and big pots.
However I have realised that they should have been grown in tall thin pots because the blooms are so huge they the ones on the lower stems sit on the soil even with gentle support. I would like some advice on how to manage them over winter? I have moved them into the greenhouse and intend to keep them frost free. But do I continue to water sparingly and should I prune them back? Be grateful for advice. I will continue to use T&M as apart from my own experience so far I have heard nothing but good reports from fellow Gardenersqnd Allotmenteers.
Thank you for your review. I hope we can continue to be of service. I have sent an email with some overwintering advice for your Fuchsias, I hope you find this information helpful.
so far so good
By Mandy Scotcher 06-05-2014
Bought these a few weeks ago and they are doing really well so far. How many plants would you suggest for a hanging basket? I have the 15inch easy fill baskets.
Thank you for your review. I hope we can continue to be of service. If you would like to look at the link I have provided below, this will give you a rough guide with how many plugs of each variety can be planted into a hanging basket.
By Doris Clarke 14-04-2014
Ordered 100 of these in the hope of having splendid baskets. Arrived dry, leggy and burned by frost or cold. T&M say I have to wait and see if they recover. I explained that only 54 have a chance of recovery and I paid for 100. Obviously doesn't do to order large quantity. Will not be ordering from T&M again.
Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your recent purchase. If you would like to contact our Customer care team on firstname.lastname@example.org, one of our agents will be happy to investigate this matter further.
What a display !
By liliana sutton 14-01-2014
The plugs came in wonderful condition. The flowers surpassed my expectations, and the season was long. I now have the plants overwintering in my conservatory.
By Ruth Jevons 23-07-2013
Thanks to these Fushia plugs I have the best display of baskets & containers.
I only wish I had planted fewer plants with them in the baskets as they detract from the wonderful large blooms. I know for next year...
By Laura Neligan 12-07-2013
The flowers from the fuchsias are absolutely beautiful, especially the 'vodoo' variety. Flowers are enormous - size of my palm! Looking forward to them all coming out in full flower.
By Helen Woods 12-04-2013
My plugs arrived today,They look in great condition!! THANKS!!
By James Lovell 11-04-2013
Received these about two weeks ago, looking so very healthy. Potted them on straight away and they are already going great guns. Nice range of leaf shapes and colours. Cannot wait to get them into their hanging basket and outside in the sunshine.
Stunning? Still flowering in November.
By erica mann 10-11-2012
Stunning, huge flower heads. A delight throughout the summer. Still flowering on 10 th November. Not sure about overwintering them either. Instructions would have been helpful.
By Jacky White 26-10-2012
These fuschias have it! I've enjoyed their huge blooms throughout Summer, and still in late October. But should I be taking them in now as frost is promised tonight? Nothing on the description says what to do with them after flowering.
Stunning collection !
By TERRIE MCCLEAN 31-03-2012
I grew these in 2011 and have just placed a repeat order. Easy to grow and the mix of colours look stunning together. My neighbour said her fuchsia basket looked positively plain next to mine. (She was right ! )
By jacqui housego 13-11-2011
a great plant, they are so big, my friends want some for next summer, so have plenty in stock, as I will need loads. Giant fuchsias.
By Heena Patel 06-11-2011
This plug plants is going so strong even in november it is full on flower with very littel care i have given and it is in quite poor soil. Well pleased with result.Let you know how it will do next year,
By Peter Humphrey 28-10-2011
I reviewed these fuschias in July when I had a stunning display. It is now the end of October and they are still in full flower. I have lifted a couple of plants into pots for the conservatory for some early winter colour. I have already ordered these for next year. Thank you T & M for another success
Fuschia Giants Collection A and B
By Susan Day 13-09-2011
These plugs were quite small and I was a little sceptical they would survive, but I planted them up straight in to the hanging baskets and pots, using a multi-purpose compost, and they have completely exceeded my expectations - the flowers are huge and the colours delightful. The plants are now an amazing size and I am going to try to take cuttings when they have finished flowering. Thank you.
Fuchsia "Giants" collection.
By Hilda Gooby 12-09-2011
I added some of these to last years Flower Pouch, which contained plants from last year, which had unexpectedly survived the horrible winter in my greenhouse. I removed the dead ones & replaced as much of the old compost as was possible, using multi-purpose compost mixed with water- retaining crystals, re-hydrated compressed moss & slow release fertiliser. Unfortunately, I also added double Bizzie Lizzies which seccumbed to the dreaded virus that is affecting them. However, in spite, they look lovely still. The rest I put into a mixed basket & they are flowering their heads off still, with lots of buds still to come. Really beautiful.
By valerie kerr 12-09-2011
Can not believe you could get so many big beautiful flowers from them 2nd week in September and sill going strong with plenty more more buds on the plants. Definitely buy again ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS
By Diana Sidwell 12-09-2011
Beautiful blooms producing a stunning display of fushias. The colours complimented my hanging basket which has been the envy of my neighbours (I can see them all looking at pointing)
By Elizabeth Cowie 12-09-2011
THis is my first purchase frpm THompson & Morgan, it won't be my last. Neighbours keep coming to ask how we managed to have such a wonderful display.
Fuschia Giants Collection
By Peter Richardson 11-09-2011
Bought as plugs, giving no problems to grow on, they were located in planters and hanging baskets, where they are still producing large quantities of flowers. Better in hanging baskets where the full glory of their flowers can be appreciated. A magnificent addition to a summer garden.
By Jackie Gooch 11-09-2011
Gorgeous flowers and no one can quite believe their size!. Will definitely be back for more next year.

Yet again plant plugs from T & M have come up trumps.They save me a lot of extra work.These Fuschias really are breathtaking,I have had several friends not believe the size and beauty of the blooms.Here we are in late July and they have not let up blooming and look as if there will be plenty more.Let's hope these are available for next year
By Sarah Platt 27-05-2011
This is my second year of giant fuchsias, I adore them, they are good plug plants when they arrive and grow on really quickly and the display last year was breathtaking - lots of admiring glances as people walked past my house!! My mum was also very jealous!!!!
Good size, easy to grow plants
By Emma Stanbrook 19-05-2011
The Fuchsias were a good size when delivered, and have just carried on growing really well. Just starting to form buds now, so I am eagerly awaiting the display!
great value, healthy, sturdy plants
By Jools McCarthy 14-05-2011
I have ordered these plants online for 3 years running now. They are great value, strong sturdy plants that cope well with the shaded conditions in my hanging baskets, very floriferous. I would recommend them to anyone :-)
