    Your fuchsia cuttings will, no doubt, be snug & warm, well warmer than the outside, :lol: during your winter, BigBilly. Guess we are very fortunate to not have to worry about frosts or all the preparations required to see your plants through them.

    The flower buds on our cuttings are growing fast but are, at the moment, a lighter shade of pink than the parent fuchsia plant. It is a mass of buds & flowers right now. It looks fantastic. Taking these pieces off it, for the cuttings, seems to have agreed with it. :cool3:

    Today's images of the fuchsia cuttings. They have grown so much & I am very happy at how this has turned out. The buds are a paler pink than those on the parent plant, though. Think I should give them a dose of magnesium sulphate AKA Epsom salts. It, most definitely, will not hurt them & could, hopefully, improve their colour. Apart from the paler colour of the buds, these cuttings are doing well.

    Have started repotting the fushsia cuttings into their winter pots. am going to try some as standards, the rest as bush or trailing. Am really plesed with the root systems they have got.

    My word, that is a very impressive root system your fuchsia cuttings have, BigBilly. Won't be finding out if mine are the same as I shall not be repotting them, at least for a while, anyway. :D If they grow too big for the pots they are in then, maybe, I might.

    This fuchsia cutting experiment has proved very successful & I, most definitely, have found out that you only ever need to buy one fuchsia plant. Except, of course, if you want a few different flower colours. :whistle: :lol2:

    The first flower on the fuchsia cuttings. :bravo:

    The flowers, buds & leaves of the fuchsia cuttings are paler than those on the parent plant. Even so, they are very healthy looking & are growing very fast.

    Its pretty flower. The peplum of the skirt is a paler pink than the flowers on the parent plant which are shown in the image in the next post down.

    Today's image of our fuchsia cuttings. Cannot believe it is just a month since I first undertook this experiment. They have done so well & grown so fast. This is wonderful. :D

    The larger pot of fuchsia cuttings. The tallest plants are 45cms (18ins). They are also bushing out wonderfully. This experiment certainly worked. The tallest fuchsia cuttings in the smaller pot are 40cms (16ins) tall.

    • Your fuschias are certainly doing well Joy. Mine have made some growth but am only just back from Crete so still getting back to our comfortable little rut.

    Not yet back in the groove of home life yet Joy,suffering a bit with the drop in tempratures. No hectic nightlife for us, not our scene ,but did have some nice meals out in the evenings. Spent a lot of time in the mountains and also managed to catch up with our Cretan village friends who we last saw ten years ago. Took lots of pics so a lot of sorting to do.

    Will try and catch up with things on Patio Garden, but it may take a bit of time.

    You certainly have had a great time, BigBilly. The mountain region in Crete would be so beautiful. No wonder you took heaps of pics. I'll bet the temp differences would be very noticeable, too. Thank goodness for heating, eh??

    Shall post a bit slower so you can catch up. :lol2:

    The fuchsia cuttings continue to shoot up. The tallest one is now 50cms (or 20ins) tall.

    The fuchsia cuttings in this wonderful experiment continue to thrive. They do not seem to mind being crowded in the pot together, either, & are flowering so well.

    The fuchsia cuttings are almost running wild. They have grown so vigorously. Think they are taking over. :lol:

    These pics were taken a few days ago & they have grown even more since then.

    The buds in the above fuchsia cutting image have opened.

    Picasa has released its newest update (3.9) & it has borders plus other effects, seen in Picnik. Yhis will make some things easier to do. One is the borders. I have wanted to put a plain black border around my pics ever since seeing the borders on my pics Windows uses for my screensavers but it was too time consuming to do. Now it will be easy. :D

    Here is the new fuchsia pic with a border.
