Last year we had a heavy infestation of aphids on Frances Fuchsia collection. So they were given a spray with pyrethrum. Unfortunately I used an incorrect sprayer which hadn't been thoroughly cleaned since using some glyphosate and trichlorpyr, so we lost about 60% of the Fuchsias and those which survived didn't flower too well.
Things are much better this year - my sprayer hygiene, as well as the fuchsia flowering. Here is about half the collection:
While I had my camera in the vicinity I also took a couple of photos of our pineapple lilies which are doing a great job.
