I have a large Nemesia in a pot. Can I keep it in the greenhouse over winter?
If the temperatures are kept above 32 degrees F you may be able to winter over the pot.
o to help bring them back ,I bought them to fill the middle of my baskets but they have started to hang over tje edge
Let's assume they are receiving adequate water and fertilizer. Nemesia requires well-draining soil and watering too much will lead to root rot. I suggest you cut them back by 1/4. This should rejuvenate them. If you have the Sunsatia series, they may cease blooming when nighttime temps are over 70. If you are having brutal heat, move them temporarily will they get more shade.

Hello, I have a potted Nemesia Vanilla Wisley which is rapidly shrivelling, flowers turning brown, despite my best efforts. Please help! It arrived with gorgeous fluttering fragrant flowers, and despite keeping soil moist, the whole plant is drying out. I’ve since elevated the soil with some stones and cut bigger holes in the inner plastic flowerpot to aid drainage. No sign of recovery though! This beauty should flower right through to September. Could it have got waterlogged? Garden is south facing so would it prefer shade? I thought these were fairly hardy. Please see two pics below.. Many thanks for any advice you can give me. Kind regards, Elizabeth Adey
This plant should grow in full sun and have moist but well drained soil.
Keep plants well watered throughout the summer to maintain flower production.
With proper care it should bloom through summer and even into fall.
Hello, I’m really hoping someone can help me out, I’ve looked and looked and cannot find any information anywhere that says the Nemesia flower is toxic to digest. But I also can’t find anywhere that says it’s a edible flower. I know it’s apparently in the same family as Foxglove. Really hoping someone has the answer for this.
I didn't find it on a toxic list, but I did find a statement on a grower's website that said it is not recommended for consumption by animals or humans.
So, to be safe, I would not eat it.
My "Fragrant Gem" nemesia is starting to look a bit sad with lots of dead brown buds. The pots are on a south-facing sunny balcony. Feeding once a week with tomato food.
It is, likely, overfertilization. Make sure to test the soil to ensure that it needs fertilizer before doing so. This will avoid issues in the future.
Here is an article that will help you to test your soil:

what do I do with my Nemacias in the fall when they stop blooming?
I will assume that you are referencing Nemesia. There is an annual, and a tender perennial, depending on which you have. In all but the warmest climates, the perennial will act like an annual, so it is best to assume that anything you plant will act like an annual.
You can remove the plant when it dies off for the year.
