I didn't realise it was so windy today! My fuschia which I was going to take in when the weather got bad snapped clean in half. It was very top heavy... There is one small branch with leaves still on it, will it grow back does anyone know?

I'm sure it will be fine....I prune my fuchsias hard and they bounce right back.

ooops, apologies...... I only just noticed your heading...."standard fuchsia"....I have no experience of such fuchsias, but I don't see why it shouldn't recover, as with everything in gardening, time and a little patience should answer your question.

Hi Cherrysparkle,

The exact same thing happened to me about 3 years ago.

I used white surgical tape and taped the tree up tight where the snap occurred ,

Its been fine ever since

Good luck with it xx
