Fushia growing deformed
Hi! We've had this fushia in our garden for thirty years and it's olways been prolific until last year. After it's first flowering, it started growing deformed. We cut it down for winter, and it started growing like normal in spring. It flowered fine at first, but now it's growing deformed again. The flowers are not growing right, and the ends of all the branches are forming hard deformed growths. Twenty years ago we took a cutting from this one and planted it next to it, and that one seems uneffected and is completely normal. The growths are hard, and heavy and taking over the plant. I've taken some photos. Hopefully someone out there will have an idea what's going on! Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Fuchsia gall mite. All you can do is keep cutting off affected parts:
Aww, yeah, you are right that does look like it. Thanks for the help! I'll cut him back and keep him trimmed of any infected areas next year! Thanks so much for the help!
