You'll love the vibrant eye-catching display you can create with this Bizzie Lizzie Today's Special Value. Here are some FAQs to help you grow the plants to their full potential…
How big do these Busy Lizzies grow to?
Each plant grows to a height and spread of about 30cm (12").
Are they annuals or perennials?
Busy Lizzies are annuals.
What will I receive?
Your Busy Lizzie plants arrive as plugs in a 140-tray.
Can I plant them outside straight away?
No, the plugs will need to be grown on before they are placed outside – don't place them outside until all risk of frost has passed. Start your plugs by planting them into 7cm pots.
What shall I plant them in?
Busy Lizzie Expo is the perfect plant for planting into the Eezee Flower Pouches. Any extra plants you have left over will be perfect for window boxes, patio containers and hanging baskets.
How long will they be in flower for?
Busy Lizzies are extremely weather tolerant and will flower from June through to autumn.
What fertiliser should I use?
During the growing season, we recommend feeding your plants every two weeks with a well-balanced liquid fertiliser.
What's the best position for these flowers?
Once the Busy Lizzies have been potted on and planted up, they grow best outside in sun or shade.
How often do I need to water them?
You should water the plants regularly throughout the summer, trying to avoid water on the foliage as this can cause scorching. In high summer it's best to water them every day.
Tip: Test the surface of the compost with your fingers and if it's dried out, then give the Busy Lizzies water.
Should I dead head for better results?
Yes, removing faded flowers will generally encourage more blooms. It's also good to remove any dead or faded foliage. Dead heading allows the plant to concentrate on producing more healthy blooms and foliage.
What other plants complement Busy Lizzies?
Border perennial and annual plants will create an excellent display; even other Busy Lizzies such as Apricot Butterfly would make a beautiful display.
Which way up should I put them in the compost?
Place the plug cell that contains the roots into the cell.
What soil do the plants like?
Busy Lizzies are versatile plants and can deal with most soil types that aren't too extreme. Ideally, go for any well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter.
