The production of a wide selection of Hardy and Half Hardy Fuchsia varieties is the main focus of Irish Fuchsia Nursery. I am in the process of establishing, building and maintaining the Irish Hardy/Half Hardy Fuchsia Collection.

Our original 2018 stock is made up of 54 varieties from which Irish Fuchsia Nursery will produce quality plants, in a range of sizes.

By the end of 2019 our stock base has grown to 108 different varieties and a number of new species. We hope to have them all available for sale by early summer/autumn 2020.
