    Is This Normal?

    You need to cut off a lot of the leaves, its the leaf stems that make them more buoyant.

    Is it the end of the line for this sad fuschia?

    Vine weevil? Possibly a bit early in the season for grubs but if the plant was hot-house raised, the life cycle may be earlier than normal. Is the plant firmly anchored in the soil?

    Help! Broken Star Jasmine

    If you take cutting then do it straight away if you can, meanwhile put them in water. I would plant it in a bigger pot if you can't plant it in the ground.
