Description
Hot on the heels of the stunning climbing Fuchsia ‘Lady Boothby’, here is one of her offspring! Straight from T&M's own breeding lines, Fuchsia ‘Skyrocket’ boasts the same long stems that can be tied to a support or frame to create a sensational focal point. This free-flowering variety produces bicolour red and white blooms, which open from dangling pink buds. Flowers are borne along the length of the stem, and not just at the stem tips, ensuring a long lasting display. A strong branching habit, and vigorous upright growth makes it easy to train onto trellis, obelisks and tripods, to produce a neat, space saving column of colour. Perfect for patio pots or planting into sheltered borders in sun or semi-shade. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 90cm (36").

How to Grow
Pot up Fuchsia 'Skyrocket' 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. Choose a site where they are protected from cold winds over winter. Provide a sturdy support, such as a plant climbing frame or trellis, to supprt the long stems of climbing fuchsias as they grow.
More Info
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. Apply a deep bark mulch around the base of hardy fuchsias in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold. Prune out the oldest stems in spring when the fresh buds begin to break, and reduce the remaining stems to restrict their vigorous growth to the available space.
