    I might be mistaken. I’ve just been browsing through Lockyers catalogue, and came across ‘Pink Galore’, it might well have been that. Btw, check out ‘Thamar’, might be one to look out for.

    I have today ordered (from Potash Nursery)‘Rivendell’, ‘Thamar’ and ‘Arctic Challenger’, 2 of each. I’m not expecting to get much from them this year, but bought as stock for cuttings next year.

    Hi All,

    Seem to have a problem with a good few of our greenhouse Fuchsias.

    Though not as pronounced as some of the web photos you see of Rust, am thinking it is that, though perhaps have not been feeding as regularly as we should have.

    Have used a fungicide on some of the plants, but hard to say if its been effective, think its a case of seeing if the new emerging leaves remain free of it ? though begining to wonder if its time to remove them all and get new stock later in the year, but not sure how long Rust will persist in the geenhouse even without the Fuchsias, though quiet a few other plants in there ?

    I can’t help you with the ‘rust’ (?), but I do think they do much better outside, with the fresh air.
