Thanks Sandy for the encouraging news.  Eureka would be a better climate
for fuschias I'd think, than pelargoniums.  (Maybe that's why they have all
those 'fuschia and pelarg. societies' in the U.K.)

No I never even heard of a natural fungicide.  I used to be on the Gardens
Alive mailing list but didn't pay much attention to their products.

Has anyone had experience with liquid kelp as a growth stimulator?
