I have lots of different fuchsias and am particularly fond of the long border of them at the front of the house.......there are always one or two hawk moth caterpillars in August, which I pick off. No great problem. But this year ten plants were completely stripped of their leaves and look awful.
Has it been a specially good year for them? Is there anything I can do to avoid a repeat next year? I don't like drastic remedies ... but am quite upset by the amount of damage.
