Hello all,

I wanted some opinions/advice on what fertilizer is best for my Fuchsia. I tried looking it up online and they all recommend something different. For instance one said a balanced fert like 20-20-20, one said a fert higher in phosphorus, and then one said highest in potash?!
I think the majority of things I read said a balanced fertilizer but I want to make sure because that goes against my instinct. I usually fertilize most of my blooming plants with a bloom fertilizer. In my climate, the fuchsia's don't really loose their leaves if that matters any.

Thank you!

I'm sorry. I don't know the answer to your question, but I wanted you to know you aren't being ignored. I've never fertilized my fuchsias. I hope someone else has done this and can answer your question.

Hi Zuzu,

Aw thank you. It's ok, well maybe I'm overthinking it anyway. If you don't fertilize yours and they do good then it's probably not as big of a thing as I thought.

I did some research and the consensus seems to be that a balanced fertilizer is best.
