Impatience (bizzy lizzy) - This is the 2nd year running where I have had problems with my bizzy lizzy's.
The stalks go brown, the leaves/flowers fall off (or disappear) & we're left with just a skeleton plant with lots of buds that won't open. There was a lot of posts this time last year regarding this but nobody seem to know the answer. The problem seems to be affecting lot of people again. Last year I put it down to too much rain as we had a fortnight of solid rain. This year it's been quite dry. It isn't the soil as other flowers are fine, there are no known pests. Any ideas? I attach a photo showing a healthy plant next to a 'diseased' one.
