Lobelia cardinalis: I used to try growing these gorgeous plants a very long time ago, and all I can remember is that I gave up after 2 years and about 5 lost plants, because they are snail caviar! I'd like to try again. Can anyone tell me the best conditions for growing them, please? i.e., sun/shade -damp/dry- acid/chalk, well-fed/starved? Container-grown surrounded by copper strips is about the only thing I can be sure of!
