I like hardy plants! I don't have to worry about them!

6 Jul, 2009

 

I understand That Spritz :)

6 Jul, 2009

 

Hear hear.

Very beautiful Spritz...love the shape and colour and its hardy....smashing, a fab pic too!

Is it easy to care for spritz?

6 Jul, 2009

 

Is this Hawkshead Barbara ?

6 Jul, 2009

 

No , Hywel - my Hawkshead is not doing very well, I'm afraid. :-(

Ian - I do absolutely nothing to care for this! No deadheading, I just leave it alone. So, yes, it is very easy!

6 Jul, 2009

 

Sorry to hear that.

6 Jul, 2009

 

Is there anything I can do to give it a 'boost', Hywel? It has grown a little, but it's only about 6" tall, with 4 or 5 shoots.

6 Jul, 2009

 

I like that idea, :~)) Its def. going on my wish list/fav's list.
Hi Hywel, Hows you tonight?

6 Jul, 2009

 

I'm OK Ian thanks :o)
Hope all's well with you too.

6 Jul, 2009

 

You could try giving it a good feedBarbara. Fuchsias are very hungry plants.

6 Jul, 2009

 

We're doing great, thanks :o) Just had a cuppa plonked down in front of me! Does anyone fancy one ?? Spritz, how about you?

6 Jul, 2009

 

OOooooooooo Yes Plez 2 Sugars & very little milk 4 me Ian :)

6 Jul, 2009

 

Kettle's on!

6 Jul, 2009

 

Not for me, thanks - now hot chocolate, that I'd say 'yes please' to!

Thanks, Hywel. I shall do that tomorrow. All-purpose food or tomato feed?

6 Jul, 2009

 

Hot chocolate it is then :~)) kettle's just boiled you won't be long will you. Lol

6 Jul, 2009

 

I think I would try All-purpose. You want to develope a good root and shoot systems at the moment I think. I believe tomato feed would encourage flowering when the plant seems rather too small yet. ( Hope that makes sense )

6 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks, Hywel. That sounds sensible.

Coming, Ian, now I've heard from Hywel!

6 Jul, 2009

 

Can I butt in? Hywel's right, tom food is for flowering/fruiting it has a high potash content. (I go through loads of it, Tomarite is the best!)
Yeay I answered a question instead of asking all the time :~)))))))))))))))

6 Jul, 2009

 

Well Done Ian :)

6 Jul, 2009

 

Thank you Jacque .....:~)))) I've just realised I keep missing the C out of your name :~/

6 Jul, 2009

 

Do U ? iv not noticed lol :)

6 Jul, 2009

 

well its better than people taking the 'p' out of mine...boom boom :~)))

6 Jul, 2009

 

LOL :)

6 Jul, 2009

 

Lovely, they look like tiny little dancers :)

7 Jul, 2009

 

Oh, I want one too, now I know what to look for. I have never seen that one before Spritz. It is so delicate, must sent it to my friend, she would love it too.

7 Jul, 2009

 

Very very pretty Spritz.

7 Jul, 2009

 

I'm glad that this lovely plant is appreciated!

7 Jul, 2009

 

One of my all time favourites.

7 Jul, 2009

 

A very nice plant! I've not seen this one around here. I've seen a few of these hardy Fuchsias but they are mostly red .
