Buy Fuchsia Delta's Sara hardy fuchsia (syn Fuchsia Deltas Sarah ): A hardy and prolificly-flowering fuchsia

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy ( may need winter protection)

    A newly introduced, hardy Fuchsia, that produces large, white and violet-blue flowers, which fade to naroon-purple and seem to drip from the branches for a long period throughout summer and autumn. Wonderful for adding lashings of colour to a mixed border, it will also flourish in a generously-sized pot and can be under-planted with seasonal bedding.

  • 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.

Bought for the really blue flowers which rapidly changed to purple so disappointed as were the friends I treated with a plant.

Most beautiful fuchsia

5

Most beautiful fuchsia in my opinion. Elegant colour combination. Had it in a pot for several years, doing OK, a couple of years ago, I planted it in a new bed, and topped up with regular fertiliser. Wow, it tripled in size since and gives such a great display. Flowers last well into October when frost arrives. A delightful plant that visitors commented on regularly.

This plant is in a pot on a wooden deck and has been a fantastic purchase. It has grown well and flowered profusely for several months. It is easy to care for.

Pretty little plant.

Nice plant that bloomed well last year (first year of planting. I do feel it will do even better this year as it will have had a chance to establish itself.

Beautiful plants

We planted all four of these shortly after arrival and they gave a wonderful display of flowers over a long period. The layered effect of the plant is elegant and the flowers are pretty. The colours mean it harmonizes well with many other plants in the garden.

What constitutes a 'generously sized pot' for this plant (which I ordered a week or so ago and which was delivered on time and in good condition, thank you). Although it says that it can be underplanted by seasonal bedding that isn't something I intend to do so, presumably, that could influence the container size? Many thanks

malcolm

Hello there I would use a pot approx 40-50cm diameter.

Would this Fuchsia be suitable for hanging baskets?

psychotron

Hello, This Fuchsia has a more upright habit, so is better suited to pots or the border than a hanging basket.

Plant for a difficult North East corner Dear Helen Please can you help me? I have a space next to my front door that is crying out for a pretty plant. It measures about a metre square. However I am struggling to find something that will grow. It is North East facing and pretty much permanently in the shade. The soil is very moist due to being right on top of the soakaway from the guttering. It is good soil though. I would like a climber of some sort, but not one that will get out of control too quickly. Can you help me please? Regards Kathryn

kathryn

Hello Kathryn, I'm afraid the conditions you describe are far from ideal, so you will struggle to get something to grow - especially something that is not too tough and vigorous. I would consider using the climbing Hydrangea as although it will eventually get quite big it is quite slow getting started. Alternatively opt for a flowering shrub like a hardier Fuchsia. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Fuchsia pruning Hello, My 'Pink Pearl' Fuchsia bush needs to be cut back- it's very overgrown and untidy, but I have no idea when I should do this. Can you help? Irene

Irene

Hello Irene, In really cold areas, this should be trimmed now by cutting all the stems back by a third, but in milder areas, you should wait until the new growth is emerging in spring. It may tolerate a harder prune in spring, however it can be risky and you may lose it. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Will Fuchsias attract the bees? I am keen to plant bee attracting flowers though have very limited bed space. I have one small bed with Fuschias. Are these attractive to bees? I would appreciate your advice. Sincerely, Ruth

Ruth Boswell

Hello Ruth, Honeybees love most of the Fuchsias, so they make an excellent choice for a shadier bed.

Over wintering half hardy plants in pots

You can never quite predict how severe our winter weather will be. In the absence of a crystal ball, it is best in October to make contingency plans to help your plants to survive while there will still be some warmth in the sun and the soil. Hardiness is
