My Caldey Island Fuscia Clone

Sunday, August 20, 2023

I have been enjoying the free time my August break from writing has given me. This opportunity to chill a little outside of my day job has allowed me to enjoy our garden again and, more specifically, the plants that grow in it.

Take this fuscia, for example. I grew this bush from a tiny 4-leaf cutting I took from the mother plant on Caldey Island a good few years back. I remember pinching off those few leaves and dropping them inside mt empty bottle of diet coke to keep it humid until I got home as though it happened only yesterday. Yet look at it now, as big and sprawling and colourful as its mamma plant that still grows on the holy island off the coast of Tenby :)
