Good pest and disease resistance
Fuchsias can have issues with vine weevils and Rust. To combat Vine Weevil, inspect the leaves regularly. If there are notches bitten off the ends of the leaves then this is a strong sign of adult Vine Weevils. At night you can go out and inspect the plant with a torch and, if you see any, pick them off and put them into a jar of water. You can also use specific nematodes which will target Vine Weevils and cause them to die. Rust presents itself as discolouring on the leaves and orange, fuzzy like patches. There is no specific fungicide for Rust so, if spotted, you should prune away the leaves with clean pruning shears (washing the shears afterwards) and burn the pruned leaves.MORE
Water the plants to keep the soil consistently moist. During hot, dry, spells this means watering the plants at least once a day. If the plants are to be used in hanging baskets you may need to water twice a day if the plants begin to look distressed during hot periods.MORE
Fuchsias should be planted where they will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE
Fertile, Well-Draining Soil
The best soil to use is a quality potting mix or garden compost which is filled with rich organic matter and drains water away easily.MORE
Feed every week during the growing period with a high-potash feed such as liquid-tomato feed. MORE
For best results in terms of flowers, you should regularly check and deadhead (remove old, dead flowers) the plant.MORE
