The repeated saving of the previous years crop is said to be one of the causes of the Irish potato famine.

 At the same time as the Irish Famine was happening it was also in Scotland Wales and England and in parts of Europe .

The,normal busy lizzies have no resistance to disease, as far as i know. The new guinea and couple of newer varieties are resistant.
Clogherhead, if plants bought suffer because of disease purchasers have the right to refund or replacement. However, I would contact the supplier and raise this issue with them. Their reply would be of interest to rest of us too
