Busy Lizzie

I have finally managed to grow some Busy Lizzies from seed The problem is that although the plants look very healthy there are no flowers and it doesn't look as though there will be any Anyone know why this would be ?

    If they are the standrd Busy Lizzies. i.e.not New Guinea Hybrids you will might find that eventually they will succumb to downy mildew which, according to the professionals, has become endemic. For your sake I hope they dont. My local nursreyman has stopped selling them as he had so many complaints. I only grow the New Guinea Hybrids now as they do not suffer the same problem.
