busy lizzies

west lothian-Scotland, Scotland Sco

can anyone tell me why my busy lizzie plants are not very good this year usually they are great



Mine are suffering too - not enough sun and too much rain, I'm afraid. Unless you give them a sun lamp (LOL) we shall have to hope for some sunny weather...SOON please!

My B. Lizzies in my front garden have mostly died this year Helen. The ones in the back however are doing well. I think it could be a combination of wet and very strong cold winds to which my front garden is exposed. I also had problems with a clematis there and I think it was the cold wind that caused it..
I don't know where your plants are but that could be one cause of their failure.

They are great little plants but they do like the best of a temperate summer, ie. watering, light and heat in generous but gentle amounts. So far this summer none of these has been to their liking. I am still hopeful that we shall get a good balance before the summer is over, but my optimism is declining as time goes by :-(
