  How to plant

How to plant Impatiens


Dig a hole that is the same depth and width as the root ball. Space companion plants 40cm (16in) apart and mix a generous amount of peat moss into the planting area, mixing thoroughly to keep the soil moist. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil into place.

How to care for Impatiens


Water regularly, keeping soil moist but not too wet. If the plants dry out, they will lose their leaves and if they are overwatered, this could encourage fungal diseases. Container grown plants will require more water. Brush fingers through the foliage to remove any dead flowers. Feed regularly throughout the growing season.
