i have been putting busy lizzies into my hanging baskets for years, i have just pulled them all up because they look terrible, the busy lizzies in my tubs are going the same way, everything i used for the baskets and tubs was new as i always do



Bizzies like shade, warmth and water. I would say some summers are just right for them and other summers ain't right at all, and this one of them. One summer I planted up my then neighbours front boxes with Bizzies. They were fabulous, even seeded and popped their seeds.....yes they flirt them about. Next year ziltch....the joys of gardening.

I'm waiting to see what happens with mine...I grew them from mini-plugs and they seemd fine. Since potting them up in display pots and baskets, I am not convinced that they are going to do as well as normal!
