Although some of the more hardy Fuchsias are predominantly singles and in some cases will withstand full sun, most require a shaded position during the hottest part of the day. Avoid hot windy condition. Heavily mulch the root system and move plants into a cooler location during hottest summer months.

Most plants go into summer dormancy during January, February and March and are best placed under a large tree or on the moist floor of a shade house. Avoid over watering and ensure good drainage during this period. Re-pot in April/May and prune to shape removing approximately one third of the growth.

Fertilize lightly with 100 day Osmocote or Nutricote after potting and give fortnightly applications of liquid fertilizer such as Phostrogen, Thrive or Aquasol to soil and foliage.

Flower drop caused by inadequate light or plant has dried out too rapidly. Leaf drop could be caused by inadequate light, drying out, or even over watering, occurring especially in hot weather. Rusty red circular lesions on older leaves indicate a fungus attack followed by copious leaf drop of older leaves. Rust is prevalent in warm humid weather. Use of a Fungicide eg. Zineb for control and if late in the season prune and destroy prunings and infected leaves. Dusty red/brown on leaf undersides in summer is Red Spider or more correctly Two Spotted Mite. Prune if severe and destroy prunings. Spray with a recommended miticide eg. Kelthane. Mites are difficult to eradicate because they shelter under the leaves and will require follow up spraying.
