Care Guide

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.

Water regularly

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.

Full sun

Fuchsias should be planted where they will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.

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.

Feed regularly

Feed every week during the growing period with a high-potash feed such as liquid-tomato feed. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
