CONTAINER fuchsiaS

 

 

Growing fuchsias in containers give gardeners  so many possibilities. Hanging baskets, half baskets and nursery pots are common.  They can be hung, attached to a wall, placed on the ground or on stands of various types. They’ll go anywhere as long as there’s some shade to protect their roots.

And, fuchsias can be trained to grow into many shapes. These shapes rely on appropriate “pinching” and  some patience.

In addition, fuchsias can be grown in almost any kind of container as long as it has good drainage, sufficient room for roots to grow and enough water and fertilizer.
