I saw a bunch of lisianthus this morning and it reminded me that I have always loved them and I now have a greenhouse; came home and ordered seeds on line.

Any tips on growing them?

I'm pretty easy, as long as I have a few days notice. It can be midweek, or weekend.

Dove, I worry about the recycled liquids making the bin/heap too damp, esp in winter; have you had probs with this? Have also heard that pee should be diluted.

I use compost accelorator; Garrotta is one brand, but B&Q do a cheaper version. I sprinkle a couple of tablespoons on every 15 cm or so. I get a bin of compost every 5 months in the summer and about 6 months in the winter.
