I have a small garden and have arthritis which makes it difficult for me to bend down. I like to grow plants in containers as that is easier for me

Bottom left is the cutting I rooted last autumn. Now I have a beautiful bush full of flowers and buds 😀

I repotted my fuchsia cutting today. Can I pinch the top out to make it more bushy? @ublaszko @pelly @jacaranda @mikethegardener @rbetts25 #advice

This is the fuchsia cutting I took last year. It has a bud on it. Should I pinch it off or leave it. #advicefuchsia. #advice @mrsflowerpot @mikethegardener @pelly @ukgardentags

If it was me, I'd do it until about May. It's a really healthy looking cutting Faigie 💚💚💚

Remove some of the leaves and pinch off any flowers. Leave just 2 leaves at the top. Then they’ll grow lovely strong roots 😊
