Hi folks, just a thought, once i've moved my fuchsia, should i feed it straight away or wait till it shows signs of life?



I personally would leave feeding until new growth. Otherwise it may encourage the plant to put on new growth before its established in its new home. Snake

I think i'd work differently, i think i'd move it in the warmer spring months, transplanting it 'by the book' and feed it immediately ..... i'm no expert though.

I disagree Louise, but then Tiger already knows that from a previous question. Move it immediately, as said earlier, but don't feed till late March/ early April, if for no other reason than it'll be wasted as the plant's not growing currently anyway.

Ah, thanks Bamboo.

Nice of you to thank me for disagreeing, Louise, lol! No, I figure if its moved now, and carefully, it won't even notice its been moved as its still mostly "asleep".

I 'do' thank you for disagreeing !
If folks don't speak up, we/others can't learn :-)

(good job i don't like fuschias or i'd have killed it if it was me !!!)
