Busy Lizzies losing the colour in the leaves - I have been successfully feeding my hanging baskets (busy lizzies) with tomorite on a daily/bi-daily basis but they seem to be losing the green in the leaves - any ideas on how to restore the colour or whether there is another feed I should offset the tomorite with to balance it out?



I would put some fish emulsion on them to bring the nitrogen levels back up.

It seems to be a really bad year for Bizzie Lizzies this year. They need lots of rain, some hot sun and shade too. One year I planted my neighbours window boxes with Bizzies facing north east. There was a long heat wave and it rained at night and was hot daytime and they went mad, even seeded and popped the seed cases. Next year was very poor and disapointing. They are a good shade plant and love moisture and damp and heat!!!
