    Sorry Jacob, don't know the variety. One of my favourites is Mrs Marshall which is a single trailing variety, with creamy pink outer thingys (can't remember the proper name) and deep pink inners. Will post a picture when the flowers open. Nearly there, on a semi-shady patio, and the plant has been continuously propogated from a cutting I first got around fifteen years ago.

      It's a bit on the small side (foto that is) the flowers look a bit like phyllis from what I can see of them but she's not a trailer ( she was Percy Throwers favourite though). I'll have another study ....

        Mrs Marshall is still being a bit shy, but getting there. Meanwhile, here is a photo of "Blacky" which is looking good.

                    At last Mrs Marshall is flowering (has been for a few days but my camera went to London with my daughter!!!!). Attached I hope, pictures of Mrs Marshall and another pretty one (bit pale for me which I am assured is called Lillian Annetts)

                      Thanks for the photos everyone.

                      I've gone big on fuschias in the greenhouse this year and bought a large set from Thompson and Morgan. With a lot of TLC (they arrived in February!), I've just about got them to the flowering stage. I'm quite excited as I've never grown them before, although we do have a large hardy fuschia hedge around the garden.

                      Most of the greenhouse ones are double flowering ones, so I'm hoping for a big display I'll try and get some photographs during the week as they open.

                        I'm up for a guess as long as you don't mind totally ignorance - ....Spurs Forest? Chelsea County?

                        Pretty though, JM.

                          Lovely fuchsias Rustylady. I only grow outdoor hardy varieties - but I've got 4 different kinds. Not all flowering yet but I'll post pics as they come up. Magellanica is doing it now so will get that one tomorrow.

                          From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.
