When we moved in here the garden was/is full of Fuchsias, probably F. ricartonii and F.magellanica. Noticed over the last three days that two of them have lost all their leaves. And I mean over the last few days. Never seen anything act as fast as that before. Any suggestions as to cause?
No point in a photo as all you can see is stems. No sign of pests on the fallen leaves either and they look reasonably healthy lying on the ground, not withered or anything.

Hiya @Owdboggy , although this hasn't happened on the fuchsias here (yet) it did on the pittosporums earlier in the year, and I thought they might be stressed in some way. Nothing was apparent at the time, but the shrubs recovered without any assistance, and are now in right fine fettle again. Maybe they were just having a nervous breakdown .... we'll never know it all will we :unsure:

Odd that it should happen to two of them in different parts of the garden though.
Just noticed that the Rose coming over the fence from neighbours has also lost most of its leaves on our side of the fence. Very odd.
