Cheshire, United Kingdom
I grow trailing fuchias for making up hanging baskets for family and friends. I try to overwinter them in the greenhouse with reasonable success and then take cuttings in March. This year I have had a major problem
in May, whereby the the newest growth has become
crinkly and mis-shapen. I cannot see any pests even with a magnifing glass. Some varieties are worse than others, Swingtime and Voodoo being badly affected whereas Jack Shahan is much less damaged.
It has been suggested that it is probably CAPSID bug
but I would welcome any other advice.
