woman found unconscious in front of his store, and to

now less than four weeks to go to the Ashfield Show, the first show of the
season, and we are allowing the standard fuchsias to come into flower. Any
flowers that open between now and the two week deadline to the show will be
removed. After the two week deadline, all flowers will be left on the
plants. We made the last stop on these plants ten weeks before the

before the two week deadline to the show.
three plants of Herald are being grown for the any size pot class at the
Ashfield Show. They are coming into flower at exactly the right time and

like to emphasise the fact that if you are growing fuchsias in this very hot
weather, you must spray them morning and night, fuchsias hate dry heat, but
can cope with it if you spray them regularly.
