The Q&A Archives: Fertilzing A Fuchsia

Question: Can I plant a fuchsia next to my Jacaranda tree? I know fuchsias need an acid fertilizer. Will this harm my tree?

Answer: Your fuchsia and Jacaranda tree will make happy companions. When you fertilize your fuchsia, use an acid-based liquid fertilier. This will provide both a foliar and a root feeding and will concentrate the fertilizer in the area where the fuchsia is growing. A slightly acidic fertilizer will not harm your Jacaranda tree.

Best wishes with your landscape!
