I have two plants which have had abubdant flowers and susbstantial growth and who have now for no apparant reason lost all flowers and leaves but I have healthy 'stalks'. i can see no 'insect' what could be the reason and is there a cure!



Oh dear, yet another person with Busy Lizzie problems! I am sorry to tell you that it seems to be the bad weather that is causing it. Unless the sun comes out for a good long time, no, there's no cure. You are NOT alone!

Yes spritzhenry is right. Here just north of Hull our impatiens have been the same. Wet and damp not enough sun. Ours are very leggy aswell, like backend now here.
