I have encountered a problem with my hardy fuchsias. The first victim was last year in my front garden. Then two in my son's garden, 5 miles away. Now my pride & joy in the back garden has succumbed to it. The leaf growth has become abundant, with lots of little leaves as well as the main ones. The stems are a little thicker. No flowers in sight. The staff at my local Dobbies Gdn Centre couldn't help me at all.



Any chance of a photograph Olivet?

I would try some sulphate of potash - that usually encourages flowering.

Ojibway, I want a photograph because I'm wondering about fuchsia gall mite...

That's a thought, Bamboo. That hadn't occurred to me. There has been at least one other post citing this problem, so you may well be right.

And we don't know where Olivet is. Please could you let us know?
