Q.Can Fuschia Grow With Small Cypress That Gets 11-7-7 Fertilizer?

Zone 83702 | HannahJoGrow added on June 1, 2021 | Answered

I want to plant Swingtime Fuschia in a hanging basket with a small Cypress. The fertilizer I use on the Cypress is Scott’s Evergreen Flowering Tree & Shrub (11-7-7). Is that too acidic for the Fuschia to do well?

I would not plant the two in the same container. They will compete for nutrients and space, and likely, one will kill the other over time.

I do think that the fertilizer won't be too horrible for it, but you will want to dilute it in half, and add supplemented phosphorus and potassium for the best results.
