    During the start of the lockdown I was looking for some plants to grow for a couple of containers, most seeds went like crazy and all I could find was a packet of Nemesia seed.
    They grew ok and some are flowering well, but at the moment they keep dying off, full of flower but suffering from some kind of basal rot.
    Other plants in the container are not having the problem.
    Anyone else found this with them, not grown them before I don't think.

      Same here. Ive grown them for a couple years for their scent in baskets and containers. This year about 2/3 of mine died off whilst the rest of the plants survived. I wont bother with them next year no matter how glorious they smell. Nothing smells good when its dead eh.
