Fuchsias are among the most popular and versatile of garden plants, often flowering all the way from late spring until the first autumn frosts. They come in an enormous range of colours - from white and pale pink to deep purple and blue - and they can be grown both outdoors and inside, in summer beds, greenhouses, containers and hanging baskets. They also have many different growing habits, from upright and bushy to trailing and cascading, and are easy to train into graceful shapes such as standards, pyramids, espaliers and fans, or even bonsai and topiary. This book shows how to grow fuchsias in every possible setting - from permanent beds and cottage gardens to urns and window boxes. Indoor fuchsias need different treatment, and there is useful advice on growing them successfully in the house, as well as how to overwinter fuchsias in the conservatory and maintain cool conditions for them in the summer shadehouse. A comprehensive techniques section looks at every aspect of basic fuchsia care, from selecting varieties and choosing the right composts and feeds through to propagating, potting on, multi-planting, pruning and training. Advice on how to deal with pests and diseases is included, as well as a detailed calendar of care to remind you of key tasks throughout the year. An illustrated directory of over 500 fuchsias provides the perfect resource for growers and enthusiasts looking for the best - as well as interesting and unusual - varieties to try. Each entry consists of a description of the colours and size of the flowers and foliage, the growth habit, hardiness, recommended zones, the plant?s original hybridizer and year of introduction, and many have helpful identification photographs. With a wealth of hands-on practical advice, step-by-step instructions and 800 specially commissioned colour photographs, this is the ideal reference book for everyone who has a passion for these beautiful and well-loved plants.
