Fuchsia 'Lena' + 'Dark Eyes' + 'Swingtime'
Colourful collection
Summery colour combination. The double-flowered Fuchsia will not disappoint! Lovely large, double-flowered red, purple and pink, bell-shaped flowers to decorate the garden. Also looks great in a hanging pot on the terrace or balcony! You can enjoy the colourful flowers all summer long.
This Fuchsia flower mix is not winter hardy. Before the first night frost, we put the plants in a dark and cool place (5-10 degrees). We prune off half of the branches and remove all the leaves. Place the plants in partial shade. We protect the plants against bright sunlight. Give the fuchsia sufficient water in the summer. The soil should be kept damp. Give it extra water during dry periods. For even more profuse blooming, we add fertiliser to its water every week.
This mix contains:
  • 1x Fuchsia 'Lena'
  • 1x Fuchsia 'Dark Eyes'
  • 1x Fuchsia 'Swingtime'

Planting+

Choose a large pot with holes in the base, cover the bottom with a layer of gravel or hydro granules to provide adequate drainage. Use fresh potting compost or special fuchsia compost to ensure a rich bloom. Sprinkle the compost into the pot and place the fuchsia at the correct depth. Fill with compost, press firmly and water immediately after planting. Fuchsias appreciate a spot where it is nice and sunny or even semi-shade or shade.

Fuchsias in flower pots

The dainty fuchsia flowers will look fetching in a well-stocked flower pot or planter. This particular fuchsia will blend well with other fuchsias, Impatiens and foliage plants such as the ivy. It’s best to plant in porous pots with a plastic inner pot, as the soil dries more quickly.

Care+

Fuchsias require a lot of water in the summer. Always keep the compost fairly moist. However, do not allow the roots to become water-logged. Protect the plants from very bright sunshine. For an extra rich bloom, we recommend adding plant food on a regular basis when watering. Regularly remove the dead flowers plus the seed ball and this will encourage your fuchsia to continue to flower all summer long.

Keeping fuchsias over the winter

Fuchsias are not frost tolerant. However, you can protect them. In October, in preparation before the first frost is expected they need to be transferred to a frost-free place and kept in a cool place at a minimum of 5-10° C in an unheated greenhouse, shed or garage. As the fuchsia loses it leaves it can be stored in a dark place. Here the plants will be kept just above freezing and go into dormancy. Prune the branches to half their size and remove all their leaves. Make sure the compost is not too dry during the winter.
Fuchsias can also be overwintered in pits. Dig a 60 cm deep pit in the garden and lay mulch on the bottom. Place the pots in the pit and sprinkle with compost. Cover the pit with a layer of plastic so the pots do not get wet. In April repot into slightly larger pots using fresh potting compost and keep in a warm place, water regularly. From mid-May it will be time for your fuchsias to be put outdoors again.
 

Extra+

Fuchsias are one of the most popular patio plants. They are one of the few flowering plants that also grow in semi-shade while producing several flowers. This plant is native to damp mountain forests around the equator and is named after the famous botanist Leon Hart Fuchs.
The large-flowered Fuchsia species that we know of is one of several varieties. There are over 8,000 types of fuchsias, single-flowered, semi-double or double-flowered. The sepals of fuchsia are always beautifully coloured, usually in a different shade than the petals.
