Happy Wedding in bud

Happy Wedding in bud

As the flowers develope they pull the branches down and they have somtimes snapped under the increasing weight. So have to be very carefully hitched up to a central stake.

Lovely Dorjac. Our fuchsias are just coming into flower. I left a couple out to overwinter where they were in the flowerbeds and they survived the winter.

I think that's why mine are so far forward and large Lindak. I usually trim them back a few inches in autumn and then cut right back in March. Never had to do it last winter as they kept on blooming and I couldn't bring myself to cut them down! So they are making a really early show. Happy Wedding is not an easy Fuchsia to keep going,as it is not hardy. This is the only one I put a fleece sleeve over and stood it near the house wall.
