Eucalyptus rust

Question from Katharine Walker

New house, with an enormous eucalyptus that I had cut back to 25 feet in September. I see that the leaves are covered in dark red, raised spots that I assume is rust. What can I do? Whatever it is spread very quickly to a mahonia that I had put under the tree, I would hate to be responsible for spreading whatever this is to the neighbours. Advoce appreciated.

Question from pearl

I have rust on the leaves my young Fuchsia plant, it is called 'swing time'. How should I treat my plant . I has been very wet this year, and I don't know whether that has attributed to this condition.
