  • Soil:moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil

  • Flowering period: May to the first frosts
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    Each collection contains 3 of each of the following varieties, all supplied in a 9cm pot.

  • fuchsia, 'Celia Smedley'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.

  • Fuchsia Hawkshead One of the hardier fuchsias, this one will survive outside in sheltered gardens throughout the year, especially if tucked in with a generous layer of mulch in autumn. It is a bushy, upright, deciduous shrub, which produces slender, green-tipped, white flowers that appear to drip from the stems for several months throuout summer and autumn. Providing long lasting interest, it is perfect for mixed or shrub borders, and will even make an attractive, informal hedge.

  • Fuchsia Lady Thumb This is a little gem. It forms a neat and bushy mound that is laden with tutu-like pink and white flowers from June to October. Therefore, if you want something that will put on a good show for months on end, then this is perfect. You can use it in pots to jazz up the patio, or add lashings of colour to a mixed border - and as it's one of the hardier fuchsias, it can be left outside in milder areas.

  • 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.

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
