We're well into October now and the fuchsias have all
been prepared for the winter and packed into the greenhouse. Here are a
couple of photographs, taken on the afternoon of the Wednesday 10th
October 2001 that show the cut back plants. The first one is of the
smaller end of the greenhouse. On the staging to the left are some
cuttings of Jenny Sorensen and Sneezy, two plants that I purchased this
year, with the intention of exhibiting them in the shows next
August. I took lots of cuttings from them during the summer. In the center
of the picture are some standards that have been cut back hard to make a
tight head for next year, and on the right are some pelargoniums and
geraniums that have also been cut back ready for the winter months.
This second shot is of the larger end of the greenhouse,
on the left are geraniums and pelargoniums that have been cut back, and in
the center are more of the heavily cut back standards. On the right are
fuchsias which will be grown as bush plants and have also been cut
back to make a tight head for next year. Fuchsias only flower on new wood,
so it's important that they be cut back hard, this encourages the plant to
make new growth from low down on the stems and helps make a nice tight
head with foliage down to the edge of the pot. But you must do the cutting
back in September, so that the cut branches heal before the onset of cold
