too early to plant impatiens ?

mchad21March 4, 2008

Northern California. Lows around 45 (and rising every day), highs in mid to high 60's. I want to get some in now, as I have the time.

Also, what are the fert requirements/frequency? In prior years I've just put some time release granuales in the planting hole, then fertilize I few more times with liquid thru the season. I get ok results, but I may be overfertilizing.

My soil is excellent as I have been working it for a few years.

Thanks for your help.

I dont think it is too early to start Impatiens in your garden. I think once they hit the stores they are ready.
