Fuchsia Growing Competition!
Fuchsia Growing 2018
Jean Griffin, our President, has provided a number of Fushsia Plug Plants. Members collected their plant at our last Talk – Land of the Giant Vegetables.
The challenge for Members is to grow on the plug plant and bring your plant to The Summer Show where your plant will be judged by Jean!
Grow on the plug plant in a frost free, warm environment. Choose a final pot which should not exceed 12 inches across the top. Do not be tempted to pot the plug directly into its final pot size. Gradually increase the size as the roots fill the existing pot. Pinch out the growing tips when still small to make a bushier plant with more flowers. Water regularly – but avoid waterlogging. Feed every two weeks with a high potash fertiliser. Frequent dead heading is essential.
