Fuchsia, pronounced few-sha, are one of the mainstays of the summer garden. They produce masses of delightful, pendant, bell-like flowers for months on end, from early June to the first severe frosts of autumn.

They provide colourful displays in beds and borders, hanging baskets and all manner of containers. Hardy fuchsias can even be used to make informal flowering hedges.

They are so popular, that fuchsias have their own national society – the British Fuchsia Society.

Fuchsias will grow perfectly well in either full sun or partial shade, with shelter from cold winds. They will appreciate some shade at the hottest part of the day during very hot summer days.

Try to resist popping the flowers!

To flower profusely, they need a fertile, moist but well-drained soil.

When growing in containers, make sure you use a good multi-purpose compost or one with added John Innes and feed every 2-3 weeks.
