Lidl doing these £8.99 starting today.

Has been this price or cheaper for a while was in there 15% off everything deal last bank hold which brought this down to 8.50 . 9.99 seems to be the "normal" price for these. Having said that I bought one at £8.50 as they do look good for the price and thought about getting another even though they are back to £10 now

This states it is 19cm tall less than 8 inches wow expensive or what oO

It's a plant. You know, they grow.

I can assure you that an 8" single stem Fuchsia in a pot will not grow to be like that without plenty of attention while it is growing, if your happy to pay £10 for that then go ahead! and if you need more then give me a shout and I will grow and supply as many as you like at £10 a piece.

Why would you buy a plant if you weren't going to give it plenty of attention anyway? I'm not paying anything because I'm not buying it!

£3 at Morrisons but a tad smaller

agreed - may be half price, but just pop to your nearest garden centre/nursery and a decent fuschia suitable for growing into a sizeable bush will be around a fiver. (my garden's full of the buggers, so I know )

Nice bit of back peddaling there, after your ownage.

Is there an echo in here? Someone already mentioned it in the first comment

Nobody is forcing you to buy this, so don't worry

I was lucky and purchased two from Tesco a week ago, they were in a reduced section by the front door (Lee Mill, Plymouth) for £1.20 each, reduced from £12. They had lots of plants reduced by 90% or more, some were 9 pence.
They were over two foot tall and only just fit on the back seat (with the belt around).
I removed the yellow sticker and gave them the the wife - result!

Saw these today , look very nice , quite good size ,

Buy these from your garden centre as a plug for a quid. You are a mug if you're paying a tenner for these. Sorry very cold.

Better still take your own cutting and grow your own fron scratch, that way you will find out what is involved and maybe you will appreciate value rather than lose sleep that someone running their business will make a few pennies out of you. Try and get some sleep rather than worrying about your pennies.
