Want to know everything there is to know about fuchsias? Then you’ve come to the right place! Welcome to Hortulus Fuchsiarum, the little urban fuchsia garden at Fuchsias in the City.

And don’t forget to take a peek at the rest of the website. The motto around here may be
Fuchsiae in urbe but there’s also lots of general information on fuchsias—both from around the corner and around the world.

If you’re looking to find  fuchsias for sale, learn about their  care & culture and how to grow them, join a  fuchsia society or group, and much, much more, you’ve come to the right place. Fuchsias in the City has all the stuff you need to know about fuchsias.  Site guide.

A garden, of course, is a living, changing thing so don't neglect to drop by every now and then as the seasons progress to see how things are coming along. You can also follow  The Urban Fuchsia + Blog or my early morning tweets on the urban fuchsia, as well as on many various other thoughts on gardening and horticulture in the City or otherwise, on Twitter as  @Fuchsiarius. Come and join in the conversations.
