Plant of the Month: Fuchsia

Fuchsias are grown for their very attractive, usually pendent flowers that are borne more or less continuously from summer to autumn. They are useful in summer-bedding schemes, containers or in the ground. Some fuchsias are hardy enough to be used as hedges and in permanent plantings.

PGR-FUCHGENII

All fuchsias have the same general routine care: In the garden grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil, with shelter from cold, drying winds. In containers, use a loam-based potting compost (John Innes No 3) or peat-free multipurpose compost. Water fuchsia plants sufficiently to keep the compost moist but not waterlogged. Do not leave plants standing in water. Fuchsias prefer shade for the hottest part of the day.

Grow your own salad

Salad is one of the easiest crops to grow – so perfect if you’re new to growing your own or gardening with kids. And some leaves will be ready to pick within days of sowing. So why not get started with our top tips?
You’ll need:

  • Stones or broken china
  • Plant pot
  • Multi-purpose compost
  • Watering can
  • Salad seed
  • Plant label

How to grow your own salad:

 

  1. Add a layer of stones of broken china to the bottom of a large pot. It’s fine to use plastic or terracotta containers.
  2. Fill the pot with multi-purpose compost, pushing it down as you go. Pat the compost firm with your hands to create a flat sowing surface.
  3. Water the compost well, taking care not to spill it over the side. Water several times, allowing the water to soak through each time.
  4. Scatter salad seed over the surface of the compost making sure it’s evenly spread.
  5. Cover the seed with a sprinkling of dry compost and label the pot with the salad variety and sowing date. Wait for your leaves to appear!
  6. When large enough, pick the leaves from the outside of the plants. This will keep the supply coming. Water regularly to keep the plants healthy.

Our top tip :

Ensure a steady supply of tasty leaves by sowing a new pot of salad every week. And pick leaves little and often to encourage new ones to grow.
