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.
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.

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
