Fuchsia advice please
« on: June 10, 2018, 15:54 »
I have a tub which is full of mixed bedding including 1 fuchsia.  Today when I was feeding everything, I noticed that the leaves on this plant have got black spots on leaves (similar to roses).  I cannot seem to find the cause, or how to treat.  The others pots have all just had Miracle Grow.  But I haven't done anything to this one yet.  thanks Mrs Bouquet

Have a look underneath the leaves with black spots, as there may be orangey coloured masses of spores of Fuchsia Rust.

This evening I have checked under the leaves, and there doesn't seem to be anything underneath.  Could it be damage from the dews we have been having, and then early  sunshine on them.
I went out to spray the roses - blackspot - so I covered the other plants and sprayed the fuchsia as well, just for luck.  So now its got 2 chances - No hope or Bob Hope :D thanks Mrs Bouquet

That's good news! You could always pick off the damaged leaves if there are not too many
