Has anyone else's Busy Lizzie died. Just looked yesterday and I had 3 tubs with them in. They all seem to have lost their leaves and not much left of them. Do you think it was all the rain or has something eaten them all. Incidentally the same has happened to my daughters.



I think they have been eaten it happened to one of mine over night just the central stalk left. Try putting a ring of salt around the base of the pot.

Hi pdb interesting question as our busy lizzies have been poor for the last couple of years. i used to have a spectacular display each summer but they seem to finish in July and go leggy with the leaves turning a pale green, and looking today i think it is happening again
I have asked the question many a time and still can not pinpoint a answer
Anyone got any answers?

I have busy lizzies in hessian bags hanging from my garden fence and they are beautiful Perhaps this could be a solution to keep the critters at bay!!
