Fuchsia Basket Pre-order, Support a local school!

Fuchsia Basket Pre-order!

Support a local school, and pre-order your own Squak Mt. fuchsia basket today!

We have been growing beautiful trailing fuchsia baskets at Squak Mt. Greenhouses for over forty years.

Due to the world’s unique circumstances this spring, you are now able to pre-order your own fuchsia baskets.

They are planted in September and lovingly cared for by our staff until they are blooming and mature.

Baskets are grown in a 10” cedar basket, which we have custom built for us.  Each basket has a tall profile providing even more room for root growth.

Fuchsias grow best in bright shade and morning sun locations.  Water them thoroughly and regularly (daily in summer).  Fertilize once a week with 20-20-20 soluble fertilizer or a liquid organic product.

How to Order:

Fuchsia baskets are $44.98.  You can make your pre-order online here today. 

Pre-order deadline is April 30th, while supplies last.

Pick-up:

Baskets will be ready for pickup from Tuesday May 5th through the end of May 2020.  Baskets pre-ordered through our website must be picked up at Squak Mt. Nursery during normal business hours.

Grower’s choice of bloom color.  We will try to assist in the color choice you desire at the time of pick-up, but cannot guarantee availability.

Support a School:

For each pre-order made Squak Mt. will donate $10 to a local school!  As you place your pre-order online, you will have the opportunity to select the school you prefer to support.

Schools listed here, partner with Squak Mt. annually for a spring hanging basket fundraiser.   The events in our world have hampered their ability to sell the baskets, so we are happy to partner with them in this way. 

These partner schools have discussed and approved this unique pre-order opportunity with Squak Mt.

(Note: If you have made a basket purchase from one of these schools for this spring already, thank you!  Your basket will be distributed through the school, and all your communication should go through the fundraising coordinator at the school.)

Partner Schools to select from:

Alpine Co-op Preschool (Snoqualmie)

Issaquah Co-op Preschool

Liberty High School Band – “Funds from this fundraiser go to support transportation to special events as well as guest clinicians.”  

Pine Lake Co-op Preschool (Sammamish)

Sammamish High School Class of 2022 – “scholarships for Graduation events” 

St. Monica School (Mercer Island)

Thank you for your support!
