Dealing with Fuschia Rust

Posted: 31/07/2014 at 15:13

I think you are fighting a losing battle, I would strip it of all the leaves and cut it back by about a third. This will encourage new growth but it will be to late for it to flower this year, put it in a shady spot and when you see new growth start to give it a weak feed .

I would cut each branch back to a strong node to encourage new growth, also dont put them in full sun,grow them on in light sun or partial shade.Feed them with a fertiliser with fairly high nitrogen content ie Miracle grow to encourage the new growth.Hope this helps.

Dare I say.

Have taken both suggestions, I have fenced it off as Fairygirl suggested and I will now deal with the slugs. Thanks again to both of you.
