Welcome to our revised website.  "Fuchsias Original & Unusual" describes fairly accurately the Fuchsias we grow and offer for sale at the nursery and by mail order. 



Fuchsia fulgens

Our interest in the "Original & Unusual" stems from growing and appreciating the natural beauty and diversity of the original Fuchsia Species.  Are we  exaggerating? I don't think so!  We have not visited South America where most of the species originate but can well imagine the   awe-inspiring sight as you walk through the cloud forests of the Andes, where Fuchsias have grown up through the trees, and the racemes of orange flowers of Fuchsia dependens or the brilliant red flowers of Fuchsia boliviana are suspended on  arching branches above your head. I think after seeing that my description just could be an understatement!

The many interesting and unusual hybrids that we  now have are  the  results  of today's hybridizers  using many more of the original Fuchsia species that are now available to them in their programmes (see 'Loxhore Posthorn' on the right)  We have many of these types of Fuchsia and you can find them listed under our "Collectors Corner".  Other Fuchsias grown and offered for sale by mail order are the original Species, the small flowered Encliandra types and the large leafed trumpet flowered Triphylla types, as well as the more usual, Hardy, Basket & General varieties.



From time to time we have batches of plants that can be offered as 'Special Lines' which may be of interest to you which could be posted or collected.

Sadly, Kitty Puss is no longer with us after 22 years.  Kitty loved meeting the customers and when coach parties arrived enjoyed sharing a biscuit or two with them.   She obviously made quite an impression on customers as they did not necessarily always remember us, but they always remembered the Cat.  It was not unusual to see her perched on someone's shoulder as they walked round the sales house making their selection.
