another at a different nursery. They are both doing fine. I think the first one
may also have been sold too early--it was a warm day in early May and I assumed
since it was outdoors at the nursery, it was already used to the outdoors, but
the nights may still have been too cool for it.
I have another healthy fuschia that overwintered indoors well enough (except
for a bout of whiteflies, which it survived amazingly well) and is now
outdoors. It's growing like crazy (in a 6 inch pot) but as yet no flowers. I've
already fertilized once and don't want to overdo it. Shouldn't it start
flowering soon? Should I fertilize again (it's been about three weeks).
It's the kind with pink and purple blooms, btw, if that makes a difference.
