Hi all! It's nice to find a nice a place with such knowledgable, friendly gardeners!

So I have plant disease questions for you all. The first is about my poor fuschia. I've had the fuschia for a year, and
it started to have curling leaves with dark, splotchy marks on the leaves. It's not producing many blooms. What is
this and how do I fight it? Also, is there a special plant food I should be giving it? I've been to the garden stores
and haven't found one...

Next is my angels' trumpet plant. For the past few months, it has started grow some promising looking leaves
and flower buds, but most leaves and buds fall off before they reach maturity, leaving the poor plant looking
rather anemic. I thought it was lack of water for a while, but now I don't know what it is. There's some nibbling
on the remaining leaves, so I have a feeling it may be a combination of a pest and a disease.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
