    How to Plant Bush Mixed Impatiens

    When to Plant Impatiens Seeds

    Starting Impatiens from seeds will require a bit of tending and work to facilitate germination, so you'll need to start them indoors. As Impatiens are exceedingly slow growers, you'll want to start them indoors about 2-3 months fore the final frost in Spring.

    Where to Plant Impatiens Seeds

    When ready for transplant, Impatiens will thrive in Partial Shade conditions. However, while still germinating them indoors, they do best from bing in a bright, sunny location with lots of indirect sunlight.

    How to Plant Impatiens Seeds

    Light and warmth are the key ingredients to get Impatiens seeds to grow. When germinating Impatiens, the soil needs to be maintained at 75°of , otherwise the seeds may be susceptible to rotting within the soil. Start in individual pots or small tray cells with peat-light mix or sterilized soil mix - fill your cells/pots with the mix, then water with warm water before sowing your seeds. Once the cells/pots have drained, water with warm water once again, and then sow your seeds once the soil has cooled to being comfortable to the touch. Sow the seed onto the surface of the soil and compress, but do not cover. Place flats/pots on bottom heat that will provide a consistent 75°of temperature and in an area that gets full sunlight. Watering from the bottom during germination is recommended - germination will usually take 14-21 days. Once outdoor soil temperatures are conistently at 50°of, and thr threat of frost has passed, the impatiens can be transplanted outdoors.

    How to Care for Impatiens

    Impatiens prefer rich, well-draining soil that remains moist, but not wet. Water regularly, and add a general purpose fertilizer monthly as needed.

Not what you think you're getting

Look at the picture carefully, these are not the impatiens you find in a garden store or nursery. They are spiky, and the flowers bloom on the sides (see picture, something I didn't do!). That said, if you want quick, dependable germination and lots of plants, these are great!
