It's that glorious time of year again to pick u my fuchsias. We are so very lucky to live near the nursery, The Earthworks in Covington, WA, , http://fuchsias.net/ , that grows and ships them throughout the country. I place my order on-line to them in about January, so my hanging baskets are ready for pickup just before Mother's Day. The hardest part in the whole process in deciding which variety to pick - they have about 500 (yes, truly) to pick from!!
We have three, huge baskets this year. Instead of fussing about who is watering them while I am on the island, though, I think we'll rig up a drip watering system. I'll still need to pick off the seed buds to keep them blooming, but at least I won't worry.
