Hi there!

My late father created the two fuchsias named above, one for my daughter Claire and the other after my mother. Over the years, my brothers and I have not managed to keep the plants we had alive, and definitely did not have my fathers knack of taking cuttings.

I wondered if any of your readers or members have either of these fuchsias, and could send me a cutting. Alternatively, do you know of any nurseries that might hold these plants? I would be happy to pay for them if necessary.

Thank You!

Sorry, I'm of no help. I've never had a fuchsia survive me Sad

You might try posting on the plant and seed trading forum. Your request might get more notice there.

Sorry, Rocs639. I don't grow these two fuchsias and I don't remember ever seeing them offered for sale anywhere.

You can find Gladys Lorimer's cuttings in England and Holland (other fellow fuchsias in UK and Kwekerij zeelenberg in Holland)

Good Luck
