Beginning Gardener Fuchsia Hanging Baskets Care
You might by now have already bought your fuchsia hanging baskets and are ready to see them burst with different flower colors, BUT do you know how to care for them?
On this DIY Garden Minute, we give you 3 quick care tips so you can have beautiful and colorful fuchsia hanging baskets all summer long.
Quick Tip #1:
Your fuchsia’s will need to be watered at least once a week, but could need to be watered even twice a week or more, depending on how warm and dry your summer days get.
We schedule our watering in our phone calendars and use a mix of a Dramm rainwand and watering can.
Make sure to check each fuchsia baskets soil for any moisture by using your finger to poke down into the soil.
If you feel lots of moisture, hold off watering for a day or two.
Check each fuchsia every day if it needs watering during the hottest and most extreme parts of the summer where you live.
Quick Tip #2:
Be sure to hang each of your fuchsia baskets in mostly shaded areas, like under your homes’ eaves or on a tree branch or other hanging areas and structures.
Make sure that any of your fuchsia’s don’t get direct full sun for any longer than an hour.
If they do, their leaves can start to look discolor and they will start to look anemic or unhealthy.
Quick Tip #3:
Make sure to fertilize your fuchsia plants every other week or every week so they can stay healthy and actively keep growing more leaves, stems, and flowers over the summer months.
A balanced fertilizer of 8-8-8 or 12-12-12 will do the trick, but even “flower” specific fertilizers can work well to encourage any of your plants to continue to produce and more throughout the growing season.
