Send a lasting summer planter for any occasion! These planters feature impatients and with a little easy care will last through Fall.
Fertilize every other week with a water-soluble formula. A fertilizer with too much nitrogen will cause the plant to produce lush foliage, but fewer flowers.
Water well throughout the season. Impatiens may require more than one watering a day in the heat of summer, particularly those in containers and baskets.
Don’t bother with deadheading, since impatiens neatly shed their own flowers.
Avoid overhead watering late in the day. The foliage might not dry before nightfall and this could encourage fungal diseases.
