About this book

Fuchsias is an illustrated guide to varieties, cultivation and care, with step-by-step instructions and more than 130 beautiful photographs. It offers everything you need to know about fuchsias at a glance in one handy practical gardening guide. It includes a beautiful photographic directory of over 35 types, including both hardy and tender fuchsias.

For each variety, full botanical information is provided on the plant's history, growth, size and flowering. Fuchsias includes step-by-step guidance on planting, propagating, pruning and training fuchsias, and dealing with pests and diseases. It features superb ideas for planting bedding fuchsias in the garden, growing in containers, potting on, creating beautiful hanging baskets and cultivating under glass. It is the definitive handbook for one of the most popular and best-loved garden plants.

It is not surprising that fuchsias are among the most popular plants grown today. Few, if any, other flowering shrubs can rival the fuchsia for its reliability and ease of cultivation, combined with the staggering variety of hues, shapes and sizes which make it such a familiar sight of summer. This practical book explains how to use fuchsias to their best advantage in the garden – as bedding plants, in borders, as hedges, and in containers and baskets – and provides a complete guide to over 35 varieties. From selecting the best types to planting baskets, pruning and training, Fuchsias offers expert advice that will help you to grow and enjoy these wonderful plants.
