Description
They say bigger is better, and that's certainly the case here! We've worked with one of Europe's most respected fuchsia breeders to bring you this improved version of popular Fuchsia 'Roesse Blacky'. This giant flowering form produces blooms almost twice the size of the original, whilst retaining the sumptuously dark petals that set 'Roesse Blacky' out from the crowd.

So now you can experience double the size and double the colour in your patio containers and border displays. Another outcome of the breeding programme is a more relaxed habit compared to the original, making Fuchsia 'Blacky', a stand-out selection for use in hanging baskets, as well as patio tubs and containers.

Flowering from mid-summer right through to the first hard frost of late autumn, this is the perfect fuchsia for low input gardening, coping well in shade as well as full sun. Although not fully hardy, like many of our other modern fuchsia varieties, this 'tough' tender perennial easily returns the following spring to bloom all over again if given a sheltered spot over winter.

How to Grow
Pot up 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.
More Info
Feed and water fuchsia plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to prolong the flowering period.
