Gardening & Conservation
Digging and landscaping my new garden in Topsham
Fuchsia cuttings! I am on the hunt for a less common fuchsia variety, which I see occasionally in hedgerows but never in garden centres - the flowers are palest pink/almost white, very slim and understated, and I think it is known as Whiteknights Pearl. If you have one of these in your garden, or have seen one somewhere - could you let me know?! Autumn is the best time to establish fuchsia cuttings...
