Botyrtis is the cause of fuchsia flower blight and Daconil 2787 can control it. You'll want to improve the growing conditions, though, to help your fuchsias from developing the disease. Pinch and prune the plants to increase air circulation, try to keep moisture off the leaves of the plants, and allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Best wishes with your fuchsias.
