We will be celebrating all things fuchsia in 2015 with a filled fuchsia festival calendar of online activities running right through to autumn. We have top growing advice from our experts, exciting blogs from customers and staff and on top of that we are launching more than 20 new fuchsia varieties to inspire UK gardeners into using fuchsias more effectively in their summer garden.
We would love all our customers to be a part of the festival by sharing their passion and growing experiences throughout the growing season.
“We’re hoping to build an online community of fuchsia fanatics all eager to share their tips and show off their plants via our Facebook and Twitter feeds and our blogging community. The fuchsia has a firm place in the hearts, and gardens, of our customers thanks to endless summer flowering, ability to grow in sun or shade, and their relaxed attitude to whatever the UK weather throws at them! We’ve chosen to celebrate these garden favourites throughout 2015! We’ve got some fantastic new varieties to show off, growing tips to share, as well as some exciting give-aways and competitions”. New Product Development Manager, Michael Perry.
Our fuchsia range includes several exclusive varieties that can’t be found anywhere else. From window box to giant varieties, there’s something for every gardener. One of our favourite picks is Fuchsia ‘Bella Sophia’. This new variety is unlike any traditional fuchsia. The blooms of the innovative ‘Bella’ range have outward and upward facing flowers, meaning no more hidden blooms!
Up next, we have a blog by expert Michael Perry where he will share with you his love for fuchsias. From January onwards we will be providing practical fuchsia articles, how-to videos from experts, customers and British Fuchsia Society members.
Five reasons fuchsias are fabulous:
1) Great for hanging baskets and Tower Pots™
2) Weather-proof. They’ll perform come rain or shine
3) Many shapes and sizes
4) Long-lasting – they’ll keep going right through to the winter frosts
5) Easy to grow – they’ll perform with minimal fuss and attention

Hello, I signed up for this Fuchsia Festival blog, but not really sure what to do or where to blog and when to start. I am waiting delivery of 3 Hawkshead Fuchsias, hopefully by the end of this March. I did receive an email from you but think I may have deleted it by mistake! So – where do I start for the blogging of this Festival?
I purchased some of your plug fushsia plants last year as part of a special hanging basket offer. I was amazed on how they turned out. From small plants that looked like they might not survive to sturdy plants with the most big and beautiful blooms I have seen, stunning.
I am now trying to over winter them in my conservatory so that hopefully I can have more beautiful booms this year.
