Impatiens are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of chalk, clay, sand or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Impatiens are well suited to flower beds and borders as well as pots, containers and baskets within a cottage or informal garden setting.

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.
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.
It is possible to propagate Impatiens by seed or softwood cuttings.
