Thanks Borderline, After so many years of growing them it has been devastating to have them all wiped out, I sympathise with anyone who gets this horrible mite.

Guernsey Donkey2  Sorry to give you bad news but I am in touch with someone who is tracking it and it has been reported in Guernsey and Jersey. It is a parasite and is invisible to the naked eye as it is so small. sorry to disagree Borderline but I have tried stripping them and cutting back but it has appeared on any new growth.

It seems it can be carried in the air so where it is now quite widespread in the south of England anyone is likely to get it.I would suspect that not many Fuchsias are imported from the states so I would think it came originally from Europe.

I have just had to burn over 30 Fuchsias due to having gall mite, It has been my hobby for over 40 years and sadly I wont grow them again as there is no known cure for it. I live in the east and it is quickly spreading north (see map) I wonder if they will eventually die out as it is now getting out of control,it has been in the USA for many years now and still no cure has been found.

Fuchsias are not grown from seed,the only way to get the exact specimen is to grow from cuttings.

I have just found some of my Fuchsias have Gall mite,if I strip them and cut them back will this save them?
