SEEDS: Seeds can be planted ½ inch deep. Thin plants to about 12" apart.
LIVE PLANTS: Dig a planting hole that is twice the size of the root ball and as deep as the soil in the container. Center the Adagio Fuchsia in the planting hole and backfill with soil. Mulch with at least three inches of compost or pulverized bark and water well.
Water with at least an inch of water per week. The soil should be kept moist to a depth of at least 18 inches, but not allowed to get soggy. Watering deeply is more beneficial to the plant than frequent, shallow watering.
Fertilize with water-soluble, quick-release fertilizer every 12 to 14 days or as otherwise directed on the package. If you choose to use an organic fertilizer, such as fish emulsion, be sure to follow the instructions on the package, as different brands may have different strengths and ingredients.
