Flower Garden-Tips on Growing Impatiens From Seed 

New guinea impatiens from seed needs to be started indoors under warm conditions where the seedlings can develop strong and healthy root systems. Once established, they can be transplanted into packs or pots. After all danger of frost is past, they can be replanted in the greenhouse or outdoors into containers or hanging baskets, and are even suitable for garden beds. Most new guinea impatiens prefer partial shade

Start by filling your seed flats with a good seed-starting mix or formula that you should wet thoroughly. Scatter your seeds over the top of the seed tray and press down lightly. Do not cover seeds. Also when you water do so from the bottom of the tray as to not disturb the new seedlings. Our seeds are refined which improves the germination and uniformity

  • Sow indoors at 70-75° with NO cover as light aids in germination
  • For growing indoors, sow seeds at any time
  • For planting outside, sow seeds 12 weeks before last frost but It is not recommended to sow seeds outdoors
  • Expect germination in 15-20 days
  • If sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

 Transplanting: Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves.

Spacing: Plant out 12-15 inches apart in an acidic, rich, moist, well-drained soil in full to partial shade.

Soil: Fertilize regularly.

Temperature: Grow on at 65-75° days and 62-65° nights. Impatiens are very temperature sensitive: above 85° will cause plants to stretch, while below 60° will delay flowering and slow growth, and below 55° will cause chill injury. 
 Indoor planting: Site in full sun or bright light in a rich soil. remove dead flowers and leaves to tidy plants, pinch growth to increase branching and promote a tight habit, and do not allow plants to dry out.

With its vigorous habit and prolific flower display from summer to frost, it is used in borders, in bedding and edging situations, in planters and hanging baskets,
