Gartenmeister leaves disfugured

MauraO(SE Alaska)August 19, 2004

I have Gartenmeister fuchsias in pots and in the ground, and I have this problem on some plants in both areas. The leaves are disfigured at the joint with the stem.

The edges of the holes are more rounded than clean cut, so it doesn't look like chewing to me.

I haven't found it on any other fuchsia variety, nor can I see any insects. Aside from this the plants look healthy. Thanks for any help identifying my problem.

I can't figure out how to get a photo here, but I've posted one on the Pest and Diseases forum.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Maura,
It looks as if you might have had something eating the leaves at the axil area before the leaves unfolded. You can already see new leaf buds in the axil area, you could always cut the damaged ones off to encourage the new leaves to grow quicker.
In repect of posting photos here, if you go back to the Fuchsia Forum page, you will see 'On Topic Disscussions' to the right of that is 'Switch to Gallery' that is the Gallery for this Forum. Kath:)
