Gorgeous San. This is like the swingtime fuschia, full of blooms. Fav.

20 Aug, 2009

 

it has been amazing GT, glad you like her, ive taken some cuttings just in case i loose her in winter,

20 Aug, 2009

 

Of course you wont lose her! You CANT!

20 Aug, 2009

 

lol mari.. i`ll make sure she survives :o))

20 Aug, 2009

 

LOL!

20 Aug, 2009

 

love this fuschia, I want one any idea what its called San? xx

12 Sep, 2009

 

Thank you San! She's still surviving!

12 Sep, 2009

 

Ali im not sure of name but i have some cuttings, the thing is i took some of two differant ones, both lovely but got them mixed up lol, if you want one pm your address and you can have one with pleasure :o)
thats great mari, apparently they can loose leaves over winter so dont worry and dont let it get to wet, more on the dry side, sea told me, keep in unheated room over winter away from direct light but light room,

12 Sep, 2009

 

Unheated room? My house is tiny (1 bedroom) & I dont have a spare room I can keep unheated!! :~((

12 Sep, 2009

 

ok well maybe might be ok it your shed mari, has it a window? as long as the frost cant get to it but it has light

12 Sep, 2009

 

I'm going to insulate the shed, & theres a window. My freezer's under the window, so the heat off thet would stop it freezing, I think! I'll wrap the pot in bubble wrap too.:~)

12 Sep, 2009

 

good idea mari :o), then you can pop other plants there to

12 Sep, 2009

 

Yep! Just need to get on with the shed clearing! I got my path dug out today tho!

12 Sep, 2009

 

thats great mari, how did your back cope with that,every year we clear shed and still gets full lol

12 Sep, 2009

 

I need to empty it to get the insulation in! Need to redo the roof too!
:~(((( Back's a bit sore but nothing major! Worth the sense of achievement!!! I'm gonna put the lounger cushions & stuff in the attic, that'll save a LOT of space!

12 Sep, 2009

 

good idea and they wont get damp either, i put them in bin liners to be sure

12 Sep, 2009

 

I have to put them in binliners to get them up there! The hatch is tiny so i need to pull them up behind me & manouever them in!

12 Sep, 2009

 

i hate going up in attic, spooky and high lol

12 Sep, 2009

 

Mine is also really low, so you have to crawl about in it! :~((

12 Sep, 2009

 

wouldnt like that, at least i can stand in ours,,at my last house was like that mari, low roof

12 Sep, 2009

 

Yes, I was really disappointed, I'd hoped to be able to use it as a craftroom!

12 Sep, 2009

 

know what you mean as i wanted to use mine as another room so boys didnt have to share, but builder said it wasnt worth it and for the money it would cost

12 Sep, 2009

 

Even if I owned this I couldnt do it, its mid-terrace!

12 Sep, 2009

 

anyway would only have bigger heating bills mari so keep it small, cosy :o)

12 Sep, 2009

 

I suppose! But I'll need to move into the shed at this rate!

12 Sep, 2009

 

one of those summerhouses would be lovely mari,, we need to win lottery first though, alot of people buy them to have as office or work space

12 Sep, 2009

 

Yes, but I've dug up nearly all of my garden now!!

12 Sep, 2009

 

:o(( oh well back to drawing board,,

12 Sep, 2009

 

Indeed! But where can I fit a drawing board????? LOL!

12 Sep, 2009

 

im gone,, zapppp x

12 Sep, 2009

 

So you keep saying! LOL!

12 Sep, 2009

 

Missed these somehow....so much to take in on here!!

They are stunning, like strawberries & cream!!

13 Sep, 2009

 

yes they are Dan, im going to try save the whole plant to if i can :o)

13 Sep, 2009

 

I got the cutting San, but where's my massage????
Dan, you just made me hungry!!

13 Sep, 2009

 

is your back bad mari?? baz just put a shelf in shed for me so i can pop plants in there to, im sure its warm enough as its a new shed this year so no damp or anything,

13 Sep, 2009

 

Its not too bad considering I've spent half the day shifting gravel through the house in a bucket!
My shed roof leaks! Need to sort it soon, but I hate heights!

13 Sep, 2009

 

is there anyone who can help you? pitty we dont live closer, my baz helps my mates here when i ask him, he`s a good man

13 Sep, 2009

 

Aw! Thats sweet!
I'll sort it somehow! Do it when the neighbours are out! They tend to come over all macho!!

13 Sep, 2009

 

good idea , thats th eway to do it mari, let out a cry with your back to

13 Sep, 2009

 

Nah, I just do the "I can manage......I think" & look all pathetic!

13 Sep, 2009

 

even better, men love that dont they, think we are pathetic but really we just know how to work it lol

13 Sep, 2009

 

Exactly! How do you think I got the extra worktop & the outside tap???
:~))))

13 Sep, 2009

 

:o)))))

13 Sep, 2009

 

See, I was right....manipulative to the core you women.

Oh yeh, you think because I'm not saying much on here tonight - listing stuff on Ebay actually tomake more wonga for plants and garden stuff - I don't see or hear what you two are discussing but I DO!

'Oooh, we know what buttons to press don't we San?'

Yes Mari, what ever we want we just look pathetic and ....hey presto!'

Tut tut!! :0)~~

13 Sep, 2009

 

IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!
:~)D~~~~~

13 Sep, 2009

 

lmao Dan heheh

13 Sep, 2009

 

That is the most beautiful Fuchsia I have ever seen,well Done.

25 Nov, 2009

 

thankyou so much pitta, i absolutly loved it and have taken cutting incase the mother plant doesnt do as well next year, i love the bigger fuchsia flowers :o))

25 Nov, 2009

 

Sanbaz, I don't know a lot about flowere so I could be wrong, is it Lady thumb, and have you seen fuchsia annabel pure white and is on my wish list, as is leonora,another all one colour,but this one is pink. PS it could even be swingtime.

7 Jan, 2010

 

yes its swingtime cliffo, i love them, hope they do as well next year to, i will check out annabel , i better label this ;o))
just looked and thats a beauty thanx on my wish list now :o)

7 Jan, 2010

 

Lovely plant Sandra and a beautiful picture -I just bought some in Wilko's today ;-)

20 Apr, 2010

 

thanx richard i loved them, fed them regular and deadheaded to, lots of watering as they soon dry out in baskets, but lasted me a long time, ive just got some more fuchsia, but would love these again, will look at weekend ;o))

20 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks for pointing me to your pics Sandra. I used to belong to Leicester Fuchsia society for a number of years and had a lot of different ones at one time; in the end I was overwhelmed with them !. Now I will just keep a few of my favourite ones and overwinter them. They root very easily from cuttings at around this time of year :-)

20 Apr, 2010

 

i lost all my fuchsia in winter richard, had lots which i really liked, kept them in growhouse with fleece but no signs of life, so think they are gone, normally just leave them out but as we had really bad winter i thought i would protect them, i guess you can get overwelmed with to many,, hywel has loads dont know how he does it ;o)

20 Apr, 2010

 

What I am going to do is to take a few cuttings in about August and bring them indoors on the window sill in the winter. Then by about February/March they should be large enough to take cuttings off to start off some more plants for spring/summer. It is difficult to keep large plants, or a lot of them, through the winter unless you have a spare room or something like that. I have used that method with my impatiens (busy lizzie) this year :-)

20 Apr, 2010

 

i may try that again richard, lost them last time but will give it another go ;o)) good luck with yours ;o)

20 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Sandra :-)
