Hardy Fuchsia Tom Thumb, is a traditional dwarf fuchsia, with purple and red flowers, making it a real standout in any space. This plant makes a very good garden edge, or border plant as it grows short, but will spread quickly.

Hardy Fuchsias are one of those plants that work in so many situations. Traditionally grown as a small shrub, they also work very well in a perennial border or large pot. What is lovely about these plants is they flower from late spring until the first frosts and come back every year. A win, win!

    Care Instructions

    Hardy Fuchsias prefer areas with well drained soil, a raised bed is always a good choice. They do not like to be dry, so keep a close eye on them and water regularly.

    Position, sunlight and more

    Hardy Fuchsias really can't take the heat, perfect for our English climate. Plant in an area of partial sun to shade.

    Feeding, Pruning & more

    Feeding - To keep your fuchsias flowering well, feed with a high potash liquid each spring, and again in the summer.
    Pruning - Spring time after frosts, it is good to cut back and prune, to promote a new growth.
    Propagation - Cuttings are good, keep the compost just damp to touch, pop them in a greenhouse of frost free location.

    Our pot & plant size explained

    At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

    We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

    Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

    Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

    Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
