    Non flowering fuschias 15th Sep 18 at 9:15 AM
    I have several fuschias in my garden, both in large tubs and in borders. I give them all high potash and seaweed feed and most of them have flowered well.

    However, some have not developed a single flower although they are looking very healthy.

    Any advice that will help ensure all plants do in fact flower well next year?

    How often did you feed them? Probably a more balanced feed, eg miracle grow, phostrogen would be a good start.

    The high potash feeds about every 2 weeks plus miracle grow at beginning of growing season. Some plants are lovely, others have just green leaves.

    All plants had identical feed and water

    This year's hot summer has stopped ours in their tracks. They're only just getting new buds now.

    Yes, I remember Monty D saying that fuschias were late to flower this year perhaps some are later than others and may never flower this year.
