Size guide - Pack of 5 Fuchsia Plug Plants 

Pot ready, large, healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm diameter pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Please Note - Our fuchsia plug plants have been 'pinched out' to encourage the development of bushy side shoots. Pinching the growing tip during the early growing phase produces stronger, neater plants with lots more flowers and prevents 'leggy' growth.


Fuchsias are stunning and can be planted in all manner of containers, baskets or situations. They are very rewarding and extremely easy to grow from plug plants.

Transplant your plugs on the day you receive them if you can. Use a good quality, free draining multipurpose compost. 10cm pots (4”) are the best size to use. If you are using old pots, make sure you sterilise them first to remove any pathogens. We find Jeys Fluid to be the best, if you can’t find any, give them a good wash with warm water and soap.

Your Fuchsias can be moved to their final positions, whether container, basket or into open ground, as soon as they have developed a good root ball. Carefully remove the pot and check the roots -they should be white and fill the pot evenly.

Depending on how you wish to display your fuchsias – for instance in a hanging basket or as pot plants - removing the growing point will encourage the production of side shoots to produce a well-proportioned plant. Trailing varieties will benefit from one pinch whereas a bush variety may require two or more. Pinching will delay flowering by approximately 6 weeks but the improved display makes the wait well worthwhile!

Watering is perhaps the most important task during the growing season, two very simple but basic rules being; never allow the plants to dry out and never allow the plant to stand in waterlogged conditions for any length of time. Over watering can result in flower and leaf drop. (Water standing for a very short period in a tray or plant saucer will not cause harm). Aim to water in the evening and to keep the soil evenly moist. In very hot weather an overhead spray will be beneficial.

Fuchsias are fast growing plants and regular feeding will be necessary to sustain them, starting with a balanced feed applied weekly approximately six weeks after potting. Large plants, especially those planted in baskets, may be fed more often to ensure a long flowering period.

Botrytis (Grey Mould) and Rust are the two main diseases affecting fuchsias. A well-grown plant seldom succumbs, so the best defence is to pay careful attention to growing conditions, watering, feeding, etc., and to inspect your plants frequently for signs of disease. If treatment is required several treatments are available.

My favourite fuchsia of them all. Excellent packaging; excellent plants; Thank you

Not as good as usual.
Monday, 21 June 2021  | 

These plants were in poor condition on arrival and have now died. I have always been very satisfied with your plants so this is disappointing.

Sturdy plants

As always, Brookside packaging is first class. The fuchsia were nought to go in a wall basket, they are planted and I am now looking forward to the start of flowering

Fuchsia Swingtime
Wednesday, 12 May 2021  | 

My plant order came on time, it was packaged very well, my plants are excellent, I'm really pleased with them, Can't wait to get them into my hanging baskets. I would highly recommend Brookside Nursery, I spend a lot of time in my garden, I've used other companies and I've been disappointed in the last year or two, so for me its a 5 star rating

Total Crop Failure
Thursday, 6 May 2021  | 

I ordered 10 large plug plants which arrived on time and apparently in good condition, if noticeably wet and green. I planted these out on the day of receipt into 5-packs and kept them in a heated greenhouse together with a variety of similar basket plants - all of which have thrived. I'm guessing that your fuchsias suffered frost damage in the post.

Healthy and well packed
Wednesday, 5 May 2021  | 

These plants arrived in a very healthy condition (all except one sad little plug plant that was brown and rotten) and were very well packed. I'm looking forward to planting them up and enjoying their colour over the next few months.

Fantastic Plats
Monday, 3 May 2021  | 

As usual the quality of the plants were of excellent quality. Unlike some suppliers Brookside always pack their plants well meaning they always arrive in good condition

Growing well

Growing well and plants are looking strong. Not yet planted out but look forward to seeing them flower in my old copper hanging kettle.
