How are everyones fuchsias ?

Mine are growing great and taking cuttings again.



Lost a few, but the ones I have are doing well. I could take a few cuttings off those. Lost the one I made into a standard last year, but still have a little cutting of it.

The ones in the cold gh have died. ( but the pelargoniums survived!). The hardy one outside was here when we came over 25 years ago and has survived every type of weather since!

Bonsai fuchsia growers seem to like the upward flowering Waltz Jubelteen.(lots on Google images). I will have a go at that. With stiff stems and some degree of hardiness. I transferred mine from ground to a large pot as soon as there were visible shoots. Now about 5 inches tall. Happy Wedding is coming back into leaf after a caterpillar munch under the fleece. Chequerboard, self planted in the border, is shooting. A tiny white flowered low standard is in bloom and is out of the mini greenhouse. They had differing treatments and varying in their growth due to that difference.
