Product Overview

Fuchsia Tom West

The Fuchsia has been a favourite plant of gardeners for years. Prized for their unique double petalled flowers and long growing season, they are the ideal decorative plant for your hanging basket, borders or containers. The light red outer petals grow in a star shape above a ruffled pendant of purple to create an elegant flower often described as looking like a dancer in a dress. The low hanging stamen attract pollinators into your garden, which keep it lively and healthy throughout the year. The flowers dangle from delicate stems surrounded by thick, vibrant green foliage that adds volume and texture to a space. Hardy and with a flowering season that lasts from March to October, the Fuchsia is the ideal plant to provide a backdrop to your garden design year-round. Plant your Fuchsia in a full-sun or partially shaded location that has some protection from strong winds. Plant more tender varieties in containers so you can move them to a frost-free place in the winter.

How often should I water my fuchsia?

Fuchsia's grown in beds and borders should be watered thoroughly once a week. In containers and hanging baskets, waterless but more regularly making sure to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. If you find that your plant is sitting in waterlogged soil stop watering until it has dried slightly as this may cause root rot and damage the plant.

Should I feed my Fuchsia?

Feed hardy varieties with general-purpose plant food once in the spring and once in the summer. Top up this feeding with a high potash liquid plant food throughout the summer to encourage a longer flowering period and more robust and vibrant blooms.

When should I prune my Fuchsia?

Cut down the stems of hardy varieties to just above ground level in late spring when you first see new growth to encourage a healthy growing season. To produce bushier plants, pinch out the tips of young shoots. Keep this to a minimum as excessive pinching out will delay flowering. Deadhead faded flowers and the seed pod behind them regularly to encourage new growth and reduce self-seeding.

Right Packaging

As an online plant store, we recognise the need to protect the environment and have thought very carefully about the packaging we use and where we buy it from to make sure your plants turn up in good condition with the least impact on the environment.

When it comes to packaging, our philosophy takes the following into account:

Sustainability - all of the packaging we used can be fully reused, recycled or composted. And, in the unfortunate event that it does make its way to landfill, it will biodegrade, leaving nothing but humus behind.

The right packaging for the job - we want our plants to arrive in perfect condition so we have designed packaging that holds your plants safely and securely inside the box, meaning they turn up in great condition.

What's our packaging made from?

Our outer packaging is made from corrugated cardboard. This cardboard can withstand the weight of your plants and is not susceptible to moisture so will remain strong and stable until your plants are delivered and you’re ready to unpack them. Not only that, it will keep your plants safe and undamaged in transit.

As well as being perfect for keeping your plants safe, corrugated cardboard is easy to recycle and is in keeping with our commitment to ensure we use the more environmentally friendly packaging as possible.

Packaging sustainability

We have chosen to partner with a packaging supplier that has the same environmental values as us. All packaging uses 85% recycled material and is 100% recyclable and compostable. This commitment to the environment is backed up by a Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation and ISO 14001 accreditation for their environmental management system.
