Hi all, now the bedding plant season is here could anyone tell me why for the last two years i have planted busy lizzies they have finished flowering in July and died off completely i am not sure if there is a problem with these flowers disease related or have i just had bad luck, i am now reluctant to purchase any incase the same problem occurs
I did ask at my local garden centre as was told that there has been a problem with these plants?
Any suggestions would be gratefully received



I havent had a problem but i do grow them in parital shade in damp soil.

my neighbour had a problem similar to yours but theirs were in full sun.
