Fuschia Rust on Cuttings

Posted: 26/08/2014 at 12:52

I took some Fuschia cuttings a few weeks ago and when taking the cuttings I made sure I used healthy material with no signs of disease.

They were looking fine until I went in my GH yesterday and noticed that some have them have developed fuschia rust :/ Now I know that we're meant to take off affected leaves but considering there are only two of them due to them being cuttings I can't.
So my question is would you recommend getting rid before the others are affected or not?

What Should I Plant Here Now?

What Should I Plant Here Now?

After lifting out the Leeks that were in my raised bed a couple of days ago I am now left with some space to fill. You can see there's a few straggly Spring Onions left lol
Stupidly I haven't sown anything to fill it, and I know I've left it a bit late lol

Has anyone any ideas what they would plant in this space to fill it for the next few months? As you can see by the Chrysanthemums I am not averse to planting Flowers in the bed


What's causing this?

Good question Andzik there was some at the bottom but not that size or amount :/
There was a layer of black sheeting fixed to the bottom of the base, with holes for drainage and some broken bricks etc for drainage. then the soil was added ontop (minus any stones).

I agree Fairygirl once I actually thought about it I realised they could climb *blonde moment' haha

I am digging out the Leeks that you can see alongside tomorrow so we will see if I discover anything then.
If it is a rat it's the first one I have seen here in the 2 years I've lived here!

Hmmmmmm this is very intriguing indeed lol I've just had a look this morning and that little hole in the first picture has disappeared and there is now just a mound. Should I disturb it or leave it to it?
How on earth did it get up into it is what I am wondering lol

Thanks for the link Dove.

I haven't seen anything but I agree it does seem like it was pushed up more than dug out.
