PLEASE NOTE FOR WINTER MONTHS:

 H.1. requires greenhouse heated to minimum of 40F (4.5C).
 H.2. requires a cool greenhouse - half hardy.
 H.3. denotes the plant is hardy. The heights printed on the H3 varieties in this catalogue are an approximate guide to help your selection and planting layout and is the approximate height expected in the second growing season after a normal winter.

Although the above classifications are our recommendations, many of our customers are growing fuchsias that we classify as H.2 out of doors with good results and obviously with bigger blooms produced on H.2's than on
H.3's. It may be worth a try, the first winter being where greatest care is required (a good covering of peat is always beneficial).

The RHS and the British Fuchsia Society list many fuchsias that we classify as H2 medium hardy, as H3 hardy and with the climate changes (Global warming) this has probably become a fact
