May
Now is the time that is really frantic for Lockyer Fuchsias apart from propagating all those new plants for the mad rush of orders we also have to bring on the large plants we need for our displays for all the shows we shall be attending throughout the year.

GreenHouse2017

If you are selecting new varieties we find many of our customers are influenced by the  name of the variety and not by the colour and shape of the bloom, it is far better to grow the varieties that give you the greatest pleasure, you really want to see the flower or the plant to do this.

The potting compost we use on our nursery contains about 20% loam this gives a more sturdy plant and more weight in the pot. We pot through the pot sizes  i.e. one inch at a time pot size.

These plants can be fed once a week with great advantage and are pinched out when there are three or four pairs on leaves on the growing stem. If you start early enough you may be able to do this two or three times before flowering.

We would be very pleased to see you on the nursery and like many others I am sure you will enjoy your visit. Please ring to avoid disappointment if you are calling on us.

You can view our 2017
catalogue on-line or even download it in PDF format to print out and read at your leisure. HERE

To order plants for delivery when you require them just fill in the Order Form including your telephone number and print it out and post it to us along with your cheque, postal order or credit card details for the total amount due, we would suggest if it suits you to put a couple of substitute names on your order.

That's all for this month. Wishing you all the best with your fuchsias.
