Fuchsia mystery spots

ltlravenJuly 31, 2012

My outdoor fuchsia gets light brown dry spots on the leaves every summer. Only morning sun but bright location. Deep water twice a week. Over head sprinkle once a day. It's in the 90s here. Can't find an answer anywhere. Plant looks ugly now. Any ideas?

'Overhead sprinkle'. Sunburn through the water droplets on the leaves? If your hose gun has a 'mist' setting instead of 'sprinkle', try using that next summer and see how it goes. (It can be really useful for gently re-wetting dry surface soil, too.)
