Looking After Your Fuchsia Mrs Popple
An easy to grow, upright deciduous garden shrub in a sunny or partially shaded area of the garden, the sunnier the position the better the flower colour, preferring a fertile, moist and well drained soil. Prune hard back in the Spring after the last of the frosts and provide a good quality, general purpose fertiliser to help encourage plenty of healthy, fresh new growth during the coming season. Autumn provide a good deep mulch around the base of the plant to help protect the roots from any frosts during the colder Winter months.
