growing fuchsia in DC
I was wondering if anyone had hints for growing fuchsia in DC. They do well until June when the temperatures soar into the 80s and 90s with nighttime temps in the 70s or higher. I was wondering if there were any hints for keeping them alive and doing well. Has anyone tried ice cubes at the base of plants to melt and cool the roots? Will this help or does the foliage have to be cool as well?
Thanks for your responses
