I don't have any pets and would never throw stones at the furry purries. I use Jeyes fluid too, this seems to work very well, though I still get one black and white cat come in but just to drink from my pond

Help!!! I think this is Fuchsia Gall Mite

Thank you Lyn, I have done just that. I have done a little more research and I have decided to bin the ones that are infected. I would rather loose some plants than have than have that in the garden. It is sad though to have to do that, but it is all part of gardening eh.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Verdun, they might not have any fragrance but who cares when they look like that, do you now have your own Dahlia collection?

I have noticed this on some of my Fuchsias, I have a feeling its Gall mite. What can I do? I don't want to loose my plants as some of them I have had a long time. Is it transfered plant to plant? I have looked this up and some say cut it out others say to distroy the plants. Any advise would greatly received. Thank you

I just wanted to share my lovely Dahlias with you. This is the first year that I have grown them and I am so pleased with them.  I will be growing them again next year.

I always ropot mine in the spring just as they are starting to grow again. By this time I have cut them back so they are more managable when removing them from the pot. All my Fuchsias are in pots and some of them I have had for a very long time, hardy as well as tender ones.
