Product Description

Impatiens hawkeri

Packet is 10 seeds.

Germination

Start seeds 8-10 weeks before your last average frost.  With New Guinea impatiens, you can lightly cover the seeds as light is not required for germination.  Make sure to keep soil moist and do not let it dry out.  Kept at 70-75° F, germination is in 10-15 days.

Growing

Space New Guinea impatiens 12″ apart in the garden once temperatures remain about 45° F.  New Guinea impatiens can tolerate partial sun but afternoon shade is preferred, especially in hot climates.  Impatiens prefer soil that is consistently moist but not soggy, so be sure to water regularly during dry spells.  They do not require a lot of fertilizer to perform well.  You can use an all-purpose water-soluble fertilizer once a month if fertilizer was not already worked into the soil at the time of planting.  Deadheading of impatiens is not required.
