A surprise in a pot!


A surprise in a pot!

Having lost so many Fuchsias to disease I am delighted to see this one looking healthy. I really should have a name for it but memory says no!

A lovely surprise though,Shirley..I wonder if Hywel can identify it for you? I thought' Swingtime',but only as it's the only red /white one I know :o)

Ha ha Sandra, I deleted all my Fuchsia info. after binning them but 'Swingtime' definitely sounds familiar. It will live in the greenhouse over Winter and hope it returns in the Spring!

Perhaps a little hot water bottle and a blanket would keep it going? Sorry, this is how I go when I've been stuck indoors all day! :o)

Just seen your last reply Shirley. Lol...I guess to day is the right time for a hot water bottle,and blanket,not just for the Fuchsia either .ha ha . brrr !

Well, I hate to tell you Sandra, but it's been a blue sky with sunshine day and I wore a jumper with a cardigan to bring all the delicate pots in to the greenhouse. Apart from spilling some water from a can on to my socked foot, all was fine!
