Fuchsia Tip Cuttings Swap


By Scotkat

Angus, Scotland

All fuchsia lovers here ,just testing the water so to speak.

Would anyone like to try swapping fuchsia cutting s,could take tip cuttigns now and pot them up send out in Spring as small plugs.Cost of stamp .
Also Multi put fuchsis if we all put tip cuttings in a 3"pot then move up as tips getting bigger and you dont damage the root system.

I am starting off with Rosemary Highman in a Multi Pot.



I'm going to try some Scotkat. Don't know which yet but I'm going to have a look later on. I've run out of compost so have to go and get some .
Hope some other fuchsia growers join in.

Well my friends how do you think this will go fuchsia cuttings.

1 Oct, 2008


hi , think this is a good idea, but it is difficult to start cuttings here at this time of the year, i will definately have well rooted cuttings in spring though should anyone want to exchange

I know this conversation was from ages ago? just wondered if any of you are still doing this? I am in Shropshire, UK, are you in UK too? I have a few varieties, not many yet but want to expand on what i have already. :)

Hello Steve yes but I did loose all my fuchsias to bad winter so this year I have started again.

You can see my fuchsia 2011 blog .

And if there is any there you don't have happy to swap cuttings.

Ohhh Cool.....I like the thought Of Blackie, do u have any young ones of that? I have not many as i say but I have Brutus, Waveney Sunrise, La Campanella, F. Magallanica "Alba", and someone gave me a very old tired plant which was very woody and useful for cuttings only so i have put in cuttings but not sure what it is. So if you'd like any of these then that sounds cool. Kit Oxtoby is very nice too so depends what/if you want any that I have but am defo interested in Blackie and Kit Oxtoby!! Thank You :) x
