Abstract: Let $(X,L)$ be a polarised manifold. We show that K-stability and asymptotic Chow stability of the blowup of $X$ along a $0$-dimensional cycle are closely related to Chow stability of the cycle itself, for polarisations making the exceptional divisors small. This can be used to give (almost) a converse to the results of Arezzo and Pacard (2004 and 2007) and to give new examples of Kähler classes with no constant scalar curvature representatives.
