Snapping September 17


Now is the best time of year for fuchsias. I took this photo in early morning murk; now the sun is out and it’s really warming up.

I’m pleased with this plant, partly because it’s absolutely dripping with flowers and partly because it was such a bargain. I spotted it at the garden centre a while ago, where it was being sold as a container plant and was therefore in a small and cheap pot. I knew it was Fuchsia ‘Genii’, a hardy shrub which I’d grown in my old garden. I grew it on, planted it out and, as you see, it’s done very well.

Time to get out and do some pruning.
