Fuchsia Rust

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 17:24

Its been a bad summer for my fuchsias in pots this year.  They, especially the trailing type, have been affected badly by rust and subsequent leaf drop.

I treated them by a fungus spray in the summer and removed as many rust affected leaves as I could.

I now wonder whether I will be able to pot up and over winter these fuchsias in the greenhouse to use again next summer?

Does anyone have any advice on this please?

Will keep my fingers crossed for your brother and all the others - this part of the world usually suffers from drought!

No - fortunately we are on top of the cliffs in Felixstowe though lower areas have been under water and populations evacuated.  They are expecting another sea surge tonight!

Don't think its Hairy Bittercress as it didn't grow in a rosette shape but more sprawling and intertwining.

Can't find a picture of Snap Nut anywhere except in motor vehicles websites!!!

Its possible as I have some of that under the trees in our garden but it certainly doesn't look like the type we have and the one under the tree is not hairy.

Thanks for reply landgirl,

I had already dug it out before thinking to take a photo but the leaves look 'heartshaped' and Pilosella have longer leaves.  The leaves are definitely hairy though.  We never saw any flowers on it.  The roots were thick and fairly fibrous.

This weed was growing vigorously in my lawn about 50cm square - I have dug it out but would love to know what it is.  Took the photo after it was dug out of lawn

I hate these videos - would much rather have the option of choosing a script so can copy and save.

Thanks Verdun - I will wait until after flowering - do get one - the flowers are beautiful and abundant - even though we can see our black plastic pipe - the flowers above are worth it and look lovely on a brick wall and the leaves are evergreen in Winter.  You do have to pull or cut off browned ones in the Sujmmer though.
