About this book

Fuchsias, with their striking, exotic flowers, are among the most popular and versatile of garden plants. They come in an enormous range of colours - from white and pale pink to aubergine and blue - and can be grown both outdoors and inside, in containers, hanging baskets, summer beds and conservatories. They also have a wide range of growth types, from upright and bushy to trailing and cascading, and are easy to train into graceful shapes such as standards and pyramids, or even espaliers and novelty topiary shapes.

This beautiful book is an essential reference for gardeners and anyone interested in these wonderful and distinctive flowering plants. It contains fascinating history, practical advice on how to grow fuchsias, as well as an illustrated directory of cultivars.
