Thanks, PP. I do but it's a shame the sun on the flowers leaves white patches. They reflect sunlight very well.:-(

This is obviously a very close up shot of this Fuchsia so you can't see the whole plant. The bare stem measures 3ft! This is so that the head pokes over the balcony railings, otherwise I could have them on the balcony, they would get broken in no time at all.

The head is not round as for a couple of years we got strong, cold winds from one side that "burnt" the tender new shoots off! This used to make me feel frustrated, angry & depressed but I discover that if I removed the damaged branches I could leave the relatively undamaged ones & then point the head to point outwards. It also meant I didn't have to keep turning the pot every few weeks to try & get a rounded head. So in the end the wind did me a favour!
