Can someone please explain to me what a whip is? in regards to fuchsias. Thanks



This will be a single tall stem, as needed for training as a standard plant.

Are you planning to grow a standard Fuchsia? If so, have fun but remember that you will need to keep it growing throughout the winter or it will reshoot from the base and not be a standard any more!

Spot on, never tried before. So does that mean I have to keep it in a pot?

Yes, Great, and inside for the winter.
