How to Grow
Pot up plants and grow them on in bright, frost conditions. While the plants are still small, pinch the growing tips out where the stems have more than 2 sets of leaves to produce a well branched, compact plant. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise Busy Lizzie plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days, prior to planting in their final positions.
More Info
