I made over twenty Fuchsia shrub cuttings last year. I was topping them up with compost and removing any grass, weeds or moss yesterday morning. I noticed one of them is flowering already. They usually flower from June onwards.
Fuschia hedges are very common in the West of Ireland. They originate in Chile. The shrub fuschia in my garden looks like its Fuschia Alba. They have salmon pink/white flowers.
They do really well down here on the Gulf stream and they are rarely damaged by frosts like they are in the Midlands and the North of the country.
Fuschia is a relatively easy plant to propagate by cuttings. They make good hedges and ornamental shrubs. You save lots of money taking your own cuttings and propagating your own plants.
The bees love climbing inside the flowers and getting drunk on the nectar.
Have you had success making Fuschia cuttings?
