Hardy Fushcia 'Mrs Popple'

I bought this years ago way before i started keeping records of plant names on here, very tough one survived both extreme winters, looking gorgeous at the moment :-)

Looks like Mrs Popple to me - I have had 2 of these for about 10 years - very hardy.

My Mrs Popple has outgrown her space in the border she's in, I'm going to split her next spring.Have done this twice before, and she still looks good.:-)

Well I don't know what happened there Wendy I posted a comment yesterday thanking you for the id,could have sworn it was there, weird!!!, so thanks again for that definitely Mrs Popple :-))
Well I never Gralew Id never think to split a fuschia just take cuttings, mines getting a bit big now so maybe I should try that, thanks for the info :-)

Yes, it's Mrs Popple. It can grow very big and sometimes it's a good idea to split it.

That's OK Simbad. Hywel and Gralew - when would you split it - after growth starts in Spring?

That would be a good time. You could also do it in autumn after it dies back.
