I have been growing bizzy lizzies in pots for some years now. My garden is shady and they usually do very well. I feed and water regularly and have had great success with healthy plants growing to 12 inches or more and full of blooms and colour. For the last three years I haven't done so well. Already they are looking very sick and poor, with mould and rotting at the base of the plant. We have had three very wet summers. Is this the cause? Admittedly some plants are in pots with established spring bulbs which continue to do well and I don't want to disturb, so have only replaced the surface compost. But others are in completely new compost and there doesn't seem to be any difference?
I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas.
