Worst year for rust

Every year I grow lots of Fuchsias for baskets but this year nearly every plant has been affected by rust, I have never known it so bad. Anyone else had this problem?

Free fuchsias what to do now

I would plant them out now so they have a chance to get a good root system before the winter, make sure you cover the roots with a lot of mulch before the cold weather arrives to stop them freezing. they will come again in spring.

I picked up a black plastic council sack that had blown into the corner of my garden, underneath I found attached to the sack 37 snails and slugs. I put it back in the same place and the next day I found another 12, I now do this daily and find this is the best way of catching them. Give it a try it might work for you.

Was the 'spread' even?

Too much in one spot can kill the grass so its best to use a 'shaker' and try to make sure you dont go over same area twice.

This was soluble so used a watering can.

Yes it does contain moss killer but I did not have any moss on my lawn, just wanted to green it up. Why would the healthy grass turn black?

I had some areas on my lawn that were slightly yellowing so I watered them with Evergreen complete soluble feed, they have now turned black. Is this normal? and what can I do to retrieve it.
