Fuchsias Through Time

Forncett Village Hall, Low Road, Forncett St Mary, Norwich, NR16 1JG
Diggers and Dibblers

Speaker: Kristopher Harper, Harper & Debbage

Kristopher Harper MCIHort (owner) established the James Lye Fuchsia Collection in Norwich in 2009 as a hobby to preserve, research and archive the legacy of James Lye, a Victorian fuchsia hybridiser from Market Lavington in Wiltshire. This collection was recognised by Plant Heritage as a National Plant Collection in 2012.

Due to the popular demand for young plants from the Collection and enquiries about other fuchsia cultivars, Kristopher established ‘Harper & Debbage’, an independently owned and run business, established in 2016 with Fuchsias at its heart, to facilitate the growing and sale of fuchsia plants, which are sold via an online shop, or at shows and events. Harper & Debbage are winners of bronze (2016) and silver (2017) medals at RHS Hampton Court.

For us Kristopher will outline the development of fuschia over time and will be bringing plants for sale.

Non-members are very welcome.
