I noticed a couple of weeks ago that fuchias overwintering in my unheated conservatory had bits missing out of the leaves. Today the leaves have completely been eaten. Does anyone know if I can do anything about this?

Vine weevils usually eat chunks out of the edges of leaves, Knock the plant out of its pot and look for any white grubs in the soil, if you find any and they have not too much damage to the roots ,get as much soil off the roots re-pot and water with a suitable vine weevil killer drench. As the whole leaves gone it might be something else hiding in your conservatory, snail, caterpillar etc
