leaves of fuschias

Marie Daly asked 9 years ago

Some of my fuschias have faded yellow coloured leaves with black spots which are falling off, is there a reason for this, rest of fuschias are fine.

There are leaf spot diseases that occasionally affect fuchsia plants and this is more likely after a wet summer. Different varies are likely to be more susceptible and those in more sheltered positions. It is unlikely to become a significant problem. Use a high potash fertiliser in spring to harden the growth of the fuchsias.
