Cold Frame full of Busy Lizzie 'Blue Sky'™

Cold Frame full of Busy Lizzie 'Blue Sky'™

 ImpatiensBlue Sky’™ is the world’s first multi-flowering, blue Busy Lizzie. Here are some pictures of them in the cold frame before I put them out after the threat of frost has past.

I need to pinch out the flower buds before they flower, but missed this one.

These are still available as young plants from Thompson & Morgan click here. (I don’t work for them or have any association with the company, I just think they sell great value plants!). Because Thompson & Morgan have applied for a PBR on this plant, I don’t think it’s available from any other source. Plant breeders’ rights (PBR), also known as plant variety rights (PVR), are intellectual property rights granted to the breeder of a new variety of plant (or to another person or entity that can claim title in the new plant variety by, for example, agreement with the breeder or inheritance from a deceased breeder).

I’ve always liked Busy Lizzies, especially this variety with blue flowers.

Busy Lizzie “Blue Sky”

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

I blogged about them last year The world’s first blue Busy LizzieBlue Skyhttp://andysworld.org.uk/house/?postid=117, so i’ve decided to purchase some more from Thompson & Morgan this year at a bargain price of 12 young plants for £4.99. The plants arrived today by Royal Mail, and I’m a little disappointed in the poor condition, I’ve received them in, the majority of the plants are dead, roting leaves, broken stems. I’m going to have to email Thompson & Morgan Customer Services to make a complaint and ask for replacements to be sent.

picture of the received young plants, and this is the best example!

It’s very unusual for rubbish plants to be despatched by Thompson & Morgan , maybe they’ve been handled poorly in the postal system.

UPDATE I’ve had a reply from Thompson & Morgan Customer Services, they have arrange for replacement plants to be delivered in May 2009.  Many Thanks to Thompson & Morgan Customer Services for making it happen.
