Fuchsias

I have a few new fuchsias to add to the collection.

1. Fuchsia Mrs. Popple, (x2) probably one of the most popular. I planted them temporarily on one of the vegetable beds, to be planted in position during the autumn.
Mrs Popple’ is a vigorous upright shrub with small, dark green leaves. Flowers single, with bright red sepals and tube and violet-purple petals, as described on the RHS website. Here’s the link.

2. Fuchsia “Genii”. Again, I planted this temporarily on one of the vegetable beds, to be planted in position during the autumn.

Description on the RHS site: Genii’ is an erect medium-sized deciduous shrub with yellow-green foliage. Flowers single, small, with narrow, up-curved cerise sepals, slender cerise tube and reddish-purple petals. Here’s the link.
I took cuttings from an established Mrs. Popple recently, and will likely repeat in a few weeks, together with “Genii”

Writing is good for my head. When head is good so is everything, including some fast biking and slow gardening.
