Thanks Dove and Dave, I have managed to save quite a few so I will replant them in the garden.

I grew them from seed, Planted them in a 12x12 square plastic pot in mp compost.The pot has a reservoir for water at the bottom,wonder if that could be why.

Delta Sarah is my favourite hardy, always buy mine from Brookside Nursery, good quality and quite cheap.

Another Fuchsia question

Make sure you strip then of all the leaves and flowers, cut them back by about a third and repot them in new compost. The rust wont affect next years growth, if you can maintain them at a minimum of 5 degrees they will continue to put on new growth throughout the winter.

Is the smelly water detrimental to the plants or is the smell just annoying?

Fuchsia Rust

Posted: 13/10/2014 at 09:44

I grow at least 50 Fuchsias a year for baskets and this has been the worst year for rust that I can remember. Rust will not affect overwintering your plants.What I do every October is strip every plant of all its leaves and flowers and cut them back by about a third, I then remove them from the baskets and repot them individually.Provided they are kept above 5 degrees they will start to sprout new growth over the winter. Hope this helps.

Monty is fine, the programme is OK, but seeing the ruddy dog all the time drives me bonkers. I like dogs, and Nigel's OK, but it's a gardening programme - please - not an indulgent dog cameo-corner. Enough. Beechgrove is a gigantic garden, with a swimming pool sized 'pond' and that's fair enough despite it has little in common with the hanky patches attached to modern dolls' houses And I've also had  enough with the dead box hedge. I just wait for the 'to do' list and enjoy the pretty pictures. It's aspirational with a genial host. I quite liked his jewellery in the 80's, shame it went bust.

Have to agree Jack,all he seems to do is dig stuff up and then plant more stuff,I think we all know how to do that.And the times he mentions that bloody box hedge is doing my head in.I now record it so I can miss out the boring bits which leaves about 10 minutes worth watching.
