Growing Hints:

Most often bought as transplants, but seeds can be started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before last frost date. Seeds need light to germinate so press them into seed starting mix but do not cover them. Cuttings can also be rooted in soil or water, over-wintered in a warm bright location and transplanted in the spring.

Interesting Facts:

Impatiens can get tall and spindly in summer heat, especially in warmer zones. To avoid this, choose compact varieties like the Super Elfin Series or Impulse Series Impatiens.
