Fuchsias Beacon on balcony 2009-10-21 (Fuchsia)

Flowers from one of my standard Fuchsia Beacon. It is now in its winter quarters on the big table in the most sheltered corner of the balcony. It will spend the winter there like it has for the last 6 or 7 years.

Thanks, PP! :-) Glad you like it.

This Fuchsia has done me proud this year! I have two standards I started off as cuttings 5 or 6 years ago. They are 1m (3ft) tall up to where the branches start so that they can grow over the top of the balcony railings. They are both in their winter quarters now so I expect them to survive another winter to give me pleasure again next year.

Good luck, if they are to come through Im sure you are the one to do it!

Thanks, PP. :-) I will definitely do my utmost to keep all my Fuchsias safe through the winter even if they do have to brave the winter outside!

My 2 standard Fuchsias have come safely through at least 6 winters on the balcony so I hope to repeat this success again this winter with them & the 5 baskets of Fuchsias as well as all the cuttings I have.
