There's a fuchsia for every place in your garden or on your patio, they're so versatile. Did you know that they tolerate more shade than most summer plants, so there's no excuse for any dull corners in your garden. Here's my pick of the bunch, try them now!
A new phenomenon, climbing fuchsias have quickly become one of the most versatile climbers for the garden or large patio pot. 'Lady in Black' has been bred by Thompson & Morgan and features the black colourings of popular variety âRoesse Blackyâ on vigorous, 6-10 feet high plants.
One of the best new introductions of recent years, 'Beckie-Lou' has that classic fuchsia appearance and flower power to rival all others. It can be grown as a bush in the border, in a patio pot or trained upright as a unique column of colour.
Trailing fuchsias with giant, blowsy blooms are great for hanging baskets, either mixed with a range of other plants, or simply on their own. The stars of the show have to be the varieties with striped and speckled blooms, especially 'Orange King'.
Hardy fuchsias are excellent for filling a space in the border; they enjoy sun or shade and form a lovely rounded shape, literally dripping with blooms. Theyâre low-maintenance too, just trim back each spring. 'Deltaâs Sarah' is the pick of the bunch, with a rarely seen blue shade, which fades to a gorgeous mauve - there are often 2 colours on a plant at the same time!
A very different type of Fuchsia for any trailing container. Previously only known by fuchsia fanatics, 'Eruption' is now available to Thompson & Morgan customers. Early establishment is the key to success and youâll be rewarded with literally 100s, maybe even 1000s, of blooms per plant throughout the summer months.
