Fuchsia – Genii 5 litre pot –
Fuchsia are so worth having, they are problem free and flower continuously for months… We only stock the hardies; Mrs. Popple, Genii (with lovely lime foliage) Madame Cornelissen (red petals with white centre, Riccartonii (bright pink petals with Purple centre) and finally the magnificent Fuchsia Magellanica Molinae (very pale pink slender flowers which grows in Cornwall as a hedge).
Genii is very lovely, we do not ever prune them until the spring and don’t prune too hard either. They don’t like the winter wet very much and so we plant them a little proud of our heavy clay and put some pea gravel into the planting hole. Like all the lime leaf plants we grow they are particularly useful to break up the dark green foliage in a border and of course, pollinators like them.
