Fuchsias

Zone 2176 Bossley Park NSW | gypsyrose added on September 15, 2016 | Answered

What type of fertilizer is best to use on Fuchsias, as I have just bought 2 and just found out they need fertilizing every 2 weeks. Would hanging them in morning sun be ok, as they would be in shade before the afternoon.

You could choose any commercial fertilizer intended for potted plants, especially one designed to promote flowering. These contain higher proportions of phosphorus, whch supports blooming. Organic options include compost, rock dust, and bone meal. Bone meal is high in phosphorus and is a good option to provide a flowering boost:
