Pot up Fuchsia 'Lady in Black' 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. Provide a sturdy support, such as a plant climbing frame or trellis, to support the long stems of climbing fuchsias as they grow.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced, and tie the stems to their supports with twine or soft plant ties.

I've a 2metre high metal obelisk frame for this to climb up.. but should I plant 4 plants by each corner support 8" apart, or is it so vigorous that I only need plant one in centre
as it will spread from within and upwards?
I potted on the plugs and 2wks on, even with awful weather, the plants are going well and the pinching out works and they are bushier already.
