Exciting to see what happens some promising some not more yet to flower.

They are all stunning and I am sure that any you grow from seed (such patience and dedication) will have a home with you regardless of how they come out!

Have you got records of the parents? the next to bottom one reminds me of La Campanella.

Cold you do a blog sometime about how you do it?

No I haven't records of the individual plants but I do know the plants that I used to cross the most dominant colour seems to have come from Lillian Annette hybridiser Dave Clark.
The first picture probably a cross from Maxima hybridiser Rose Carel.
The second from My Little Star hybridiser Gordon Reynolds.
Thank you but no I can't keep all the Fuchsias the most difficult things are getting the seed to germinate and the seedlings take forever to grow with a loss of at least three quarters of them.

They're brilliant :)
Just as a matter of interest, have you kept a record of the parentage ?

Excellent colours.....especially that bottom one.

I think you are right Paul that is the most promising one so far.

I couldn't choose. Love them all except perhaps the very double one.
