With regards to the fuchsias, take them out of the pots and check the compost for vine weevil, if ok then cut back the very thick roots, they are last years, you only need the fibre type root,
If they are just making leaves, cut them back, its a bit late now but they will make a good growth and flower .through till autumn. If they already have a nice lot of leaves and in a shape that suits you, then pot them up in new compost, they dont need anything special. When they sta
rt to flower give them a weekly feed with tomato food, or similar with a high potash content. Enjoy, they are my fav flowers.
They have been working on disease free bizzie lizzies for some time and I would say that yours is ok. No one has bred the sick ones for a while (maybe the home gardener) but not nurseries.
