Ok thanks for the comments - they live outside as I don't have a greenhouse, and some nights they don't get watered as I work 13 hour shifts - if I have two together then I get back late, have to sort everything out for the next day, have a shower and then go to bed. Unless they're looking seriously dead of course, but if I'm going to be doing two days together I try and give them a extra watering. I've never grown Shirley before, so perhaps the nighttime temperature has been a factor?
Any recommendations for varieties I can grow outside next year?
