Can't imagine what has gone wrong this year. Fuschia in the back garden have not flowered. Not in the groung or in pots.

In the front garden, all seems well.

Any ideas please??



Mine are just forming buds so I'd just be a little more patient. the ones I gave my neighbour have been flowering for 3 weeks now. I suspect his garden is slightly more sheltered then mine. could this be the case between your front/back garden?

I have the same situation - the front garden (south aspect, fenced, sunny) has fuchsias in flower, back garden buds and just a few flowers. Everything's running late - the cold winds earlier in the year .. ?

Thank you Seaburngirl and Peteg for your encouragement.

And are they the same variety? They seem to vary a lot, Lena is always first followed by Beacon, and Alice Hoffman always last - not a flower on her so far and Lena is well into her stride already, the others coming along in between
