    One of the hardier types of fuchsia, 'Celia Smedley' is noted for its strong growth and abundance of bicoloured blooms, which can appear from late spring to the first frosts. A superb specimen for a pot or sheltered border - it has wowed the judges and been awarded an AGM for its ease of growth and fabulous flowers.

  • Garden care: To encourage growth, pinch out the growing tips of young plants after the sixth or seventh pair of leaves. During the growing season water regularly, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Cut back to the permanent framework in early spring. Protect the roots with a generous layer of mulch in autumn, or move potted plants to a sheltered position in the garden during the worst of the winter weather.
