Fuchsia by Mail Order
It has been a difficult week with us all being asked to self isolate and many fuchsia events and major flower shows cancelled up to the mid year.
But as an enthusiast, if you still want some new fuchsias what can you do? Try the specialist nurseries who will send plants by mail order. They will appreciate your support in these difficult times.
These are
Bromac, Lockyer Fuchsias, Fantasy Fuchsias, Harper & Debbage, Potash and Roualeyn Fuchsias. You can find links to all their websites on our nurseries page.

I heard from Roualeyn that they will be adding many more varieties to their online shop in the near future.

Cancellation of 2020 AGM
Because of the current COVID-19 (Corona Virus Situation) the committee has decided to cancel the AGM at Monkton Heathfield on Saturday 28th March. We apologise for any inconvenience but our duty of care to our members, especially those who are over 70 and likely to be asked to self isolate in the near future is paramount.
We will write to all BFS members and affiliated society members to inform them of this.

New Facebook Page
Derek Luther has set up a new British Fuchsia Society Facebook page. This is because the old page was a business page and more difficult to use or attach files. Derek has asked that if you want to retain anything from the old page please copy and save it. When the old page is closed we will change the header links to the new page
