Is there any reason why our busy lizzie flowers seem to not be as good at lasting this year



They prefer cooler, damper conditions than those that have prevailed down South this year - my surfinia petunias on my balcony have looked like they do at the end of October for the last 3 weeks, so even they've had trouble coping with the heat.
