I planted a couple of hanging pots with bizzy lizzies early spring which I had bought from the local nursery. They did not do well, I lost a couple and the others just did not seem to grow for months. Suddenly in the last month they got a spurt on and are growing like mad. According to the internet most of them die at the end of the season, does this variety die or should I bring them indoors when the frost is about. Any help appreciated because these flowers are starting to look pretty now.
@email@example.com Thank you for the advice, as it was getting cold I brought them indoors and hung them up in the bright part of my study, they are still growing and have a mass of red flowers so it will be brilliant if they survive the winter and I can take cuttings in the Spring
@firstname.lastname@example.org My garden is just the right size for me, a nice suntrap and room for a very small vegetable patch. My next door neighbour who used to have an allotment has got very inventive and is growing fruit and vegetables in big flowerpots
Most plants that are purchased from shops have been force grown, so when you get them home they either die or take time to aclimatise to wherever they are put... If possible it is always best to start from seed.. (I once found a sprouting acorn, which now is planted out at the allotment that i used to have.. ;0)) ) Your best bet to find out wether your plants will die is to find out if they are annuals or perennials.. Hope this helps... :D
Hopefully they'll come back next summer, it would probably be best to let it over-winter indoors or in a greenhouse , but don't over water it.. ( as the plant could drown!!) The last time i saw my oak tree was abot 15yrs ago, it was over 10ft tall. I'd love to go and have a peek at it, but seeing I've moved a long way away from London i doubt it..!! :0)) PS.. You may want to consult gardeners world about how to over-winter plants.... :D
they are new zealand impatients or busy lizzies usually grown as annuals as they are not frost hardy , keep them indoors ,dont let them dry out but as the lady said dont over water them . ive rooted just the ordinary busy lizzy in water befor so these might root in water too , ide google it and see first .
