Purple Lisianthus.


Purple Lisianthus.

These have been very disappointing - I've only had two flowers from fifteen plants!

Thats a real pity, such a beautiful colour, Ive seen them at the florist but not growing in a garden, did you grow them from seeds or buy them as plants?

I bought them as plug plants and they seemed to grow really well, but the flowers have just not appeared.

Hi Spritz-- hope you and Henry had a lovely christmas.
I've been 'surfing' Goy for Lisianthus , I had flowers for christmas beautiful white roselike flowers tipped with purple which seem to be lisianthus, with your experience a couple of years ago is it worth trying do you think, T & M sell the plants 'blue moon'? but 12.99's a lot to pay for a couple of flowers but maybe they'd do better in pots in the greenhouse-- whats your thoughts-- maybe an experiment!

Let's put it this way - I won't be buying them again especially not from T&M!

If I found any from another company, I might 'possibly' think about having another go under glass - but as you say, that's expensive. :-(

Hi Spritz remember the Lisianthus well I bought some plugs and have kept them in the GH, just potted them into clay pots-- theres flower buds!!, funny plants to grow though, I can't decide what conditions that they like best as they don't all behave the same....
If I get flowers i'll let you know!! :0)

ps hugs to Henry.....x
