Thank you, Cathy, I wasn't sure if it was definitely a Snowcap but now I know for sure, I will follow Shoot's instructions!

Overwintering fuchsias

Question from Vicki

In forum: General

I have a fuchsia ("Snowcap", I think) which is still flowering merrily and has loads of buds. I have put dry mulch round the base now the frosts are here but should I prune it back or leave it with the flowers & buds on over winter and prune it in the spring?

Re: How to Tame Messy Fuchias?

Hi, Angela,
Give how congested the plant is, you can give it a hard, rejuvenating prune in early to mid-spring - Fuchsia can handle it. Prune to within 10-20 cm of the ground and the feed and mulch. One branches regrow, you can go back and thin out the new branches, retaining the strongest and best placed ones.

Should I prune now or in the spring?

Question from Jan Clifford

In forum: Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby'

I have just grown this year several 'Lady Boothby' Fuchsias which are doing brilliantly and still vigourously flowering but I do not know if I need to prune them back and if so, when?
Can anyone advise me - thanks Jan.

Re: Bella rosella fuchsia.

Hi, Gill,
Not quite sure what you mean. It's a relatively small shrub so a container would do nicely but it is tender, so you will have to move it to a protected spot come winter.

An evergreen clematis is a lovely idea and the flowers look so pretty so will be really eyecatching and with the mauve flowers of the Campanula will just look great together. Thank you so much for you thoughts especially as Hydrangeas are one of my favorite but haven't even thought of a climber there.

Jill Bagnall also wrote "If you like mixed colours there is a lovely violet blue climbing aconitum; Aconitum hemsleyanum which would contrast. Other aconitums could be grown at the base to give variations on the blues violets and there are some white/purple varieties like Aconitum x cammarum 'Bicolor'.
You might need some lighter colours to lift the scheme, especially in dull weather in the shade. What about Clematis 'Huldine' a late viticella. It's head will try and reach the sun, but its feet will be happy in the shade, it has a purple streak in the white petals. Or if you fancy slightly more in your face contrast (yellow) what about good old Clematis 'Bill Mackenzie' or similar. Attractive seed heads long after the flowers too."

Hi, being a partial/shade wall I'd suggest Clematis "Armundii", it has the advantage of being an evergreen climber, with large waxy leaves, it does spread at a rate if happy, so prune back after spring flowering, prefers full sun, but will be happy enough in partial. Hydrangea anomala, is a climbing form that has a gorgeous show of flowers and is self supporting. Clump forming Campanula portenschlagiana 'Resholdt's Variety', is an alpine that likes to live in nooks and crannies and does well on walls in partial shade. Various ferns doe well too. There are also the hardy Cotoneaster horizontalis and Pyracantha which will tolerate the full shade, but are alot heavier in strcuture. Hope helps C

Yes you can train it into a standard, and in the winter you can put it in a sheltered spot if it's in a pot outdoors. It is a hardy plant as far as I know.
