Our Feedback
Late July and I decided to replace a couple of plants in my flowerbed that are not earning their keep. I decided I want Fuchsias. I did a bit of research, decided on the variety I wanted and then tried to find some. Victoriana came up trumps and had the variety I was looking for, and offered reasonably priced mail order too. I was delighted when I received my plants. They are sturdy and bushy. They've been pinched back so there are lots of shoots. They were well packed and clearly were posted to avoid being in the post over the weekend in what was a very hot spell in July / August 2020. Arrived still moist and in fabulous condition. I am delighted with them. A teensy bit potbound, as to be expected at this time of year, but the lovely root system means I'm sure they'll get their roots out and grow on in no time. 100% satisfied customer; I would happily recommend Victoriana Nurseries to anyone wanting to buy a Fuchsia. These are the experts. Thank you!

Probably the earliest of all shallots, this Dutch red variety produces a heavy crop of smaller bulbs that have an intense, almost spicy, flavour.

It is not unusual for this variety to be ready for harvesting in July - yet it will often keep firm and well until the following May.

Couple this with an excellent resistance to bolting and it is easy to understand why this is such a popular variety.

  • Set out 6-8" (15-20 cm) apart in rows 8" (20 cm).
  • Take out a drill approximately 1" (2.5 cm) deep and push into the bottom of the drill (pointed side up) before covering with soil, leaving the tops just showing.
  • Alternatively take out shallow holes with a dibber and pop in - again leaving the tops just showing.
  • Top Tips
  • Recently planted sets may need to be protected with netting or similar to prevent birds pulling them out of the soil.
  • Keep weed free at all times.
  • Avoid over-watering, but water thoroughly in warm dry spells.
