Thank you for your comments, ladies! πŸ‘πŸ˜€

I'm quite pleased now at how well it is performing! πŸ˜€ At one point, just as the heat wave was coming to an end, I noticed that it had red spider mite! I moved it from the shelving on the balcony wall & put it on the balcony railings thinking perhaps they might not like the change of position & being much more exposed to the wind & sun. It seems it worked a treat! Though perhaps, as a day or two later the heatwave came to an end, it was the move & the lowing of temps that did the trick! πŸ˜€

I've got half a dozen cuttings that I hope will root & survive the winter that I hope to put in some of the hanging baskets next year.

Lovely plant Balcony. Red spider mite don't like water, so if it's hot, give them a spray with some water now and again.

Thanks, Lindak.

After the downpour we had on Thursday I brought all the Fuchsias that were on the balcony railings in doors & put them in the kitchen. I tied them up on some canes & now they will probably stay there till April/May next year.

Thank you! This Fuchsia I moved to our kitchen about 10 days ago but it doesn't seem to like being in the house so I'll put it back outside again in the mini-greenhouse on the balcony & hope it survives the winter there.
