This summer has been great for my fuchsias, they are still blooming their socks off. You can see some of them here.
You can now start to feel a chill in the air and see some of the leaves turn yellow, so Autumn must be on its way. But we really are coming to the end of our fuchsia growing season.
This is my 2nd year really getting interested in growing whips and I will show you how I do it in this blog.
To start with I look for a fuchsia with 3 leaves.
Now I take off the flower buds like so.
I use small pots or recycled cups to fill with compost and vermiculite.
Then make a hole to place fuchsia in.
Then add your cane and tie in.
And as the fuchsia grows keep tying in to keep stem straight and give good water. I will keep you updated with my progress with this fuchsia.
