planting fushia under a bay tree

lelerachel(8 -9 pacific NW)February 17, 2005

does any one know if a fushia can thrive being planted under a bay tree? I was wondering if it would do ok with the Acidic soil if I dug a large hole and replaced it with good potting soil.

I was waiting to see if anyone got back to you with an answer, I donÂt want to hog this place, but it seems not.

The ideal pH for fuchsias is 5.8 (Moderately acid: 5.6Â6.0) and in my area of the UK we have no problem with this. It may be that where you intend growing the plants may be a little too acid but until you really know what the pH of the area is it may be a Âsuck it and see situation.

I have include a link below if you want to know a little more about pH.

I hope this help
