I like the colours to this Fuchsia.

I bought it last year, for my birthday I think. It's supposed to be hardy, but that's in the ground. I kept a few cutting over the winter in the kitchen & one I decided to make into a standard. It grew very well & I started making the head only one of the branches got broken off by some clothing that got caught on it. A few weeks later the wind caused another branch to break off! So I'm now left with a horizontal head! Only 2 branches remain of the original 4 - pointing to the sides! Yet they have still flowered very well & continue flowering now,

I have several more plants of this same Fuchsia so I expect at least 1 of them to survive the winter outside on the balcony. I don't know what to do with the standard, I think it will have to stay outside, perhaps in the most sheltered corner. Nevertheless as it roots so very well I'll keep a couple of cuttings in the kitchen - as insurance!

David, do you remember when I disposed of all my Fuchsias because they had Fuchsia Gall Mite which distorts the growing shoots and flowers? I may start a collection again ,one day! Good luck with yours, all looking lovely!

This is a lovely one Balc, I used to grow it years ago. I kept mine in pots and grew them into standards, they lasted for years..

I do remember, Shirley, it was a crying shame about that!Perhaps I could send you a few cuttings of 'Garden News' & 'Beacon'. I took a few cutting of both yesterday & put them in a small jar of water, GN roots very readily that way! I don't remember if Beacon roots so easily as it's been years since I rooted any from this plant.
