You can buy a fungicide to treat rust to spray on. Dispose of all fallen leaves in a dustbin or burn them, though, and keep a close watch on the plants next year and spray as soon as you see any rust appearing.
Changed your avatar, I see - you been somewhere nice on holiday?;-)

Lovely blue water behind you, and you look very brown and healthy! That'll be nice and cheering to look at as the winter comes on.

that's assuming the site is still busy during the winter - I joined in May, so don't know whether everyone just doesn't bother during the winter cos there's no gardening going on!

~Jacque you obviously had a great time~we will definitely feel cheered when it starts getting colder.
About fuchsias~one of our local fuchsia nurseries says he picks all the large leaves off ,continues to water etc and waits for the leaves to regrow making sure you dispose of the leaves safely~this is what I do as I don't like fungicides,pesticides etc~or you can try 1 pint of milk diluted with nine pints of water~spray the top and undersides of the leaves~someone else recommended Neem oil to ~me can be bought on ebay I think~is a natural antiseptic used in India as a pesticide and insecticide.
Rust is nasty but not the end of the world so don't throw your plants!
