impatiens wilting

idolhicksfanApril 26, 2006

I have always planted impatiens but this year I did it in pots, they are all wilting, I do not know if they need more water or did I over water them, or it has been kind of chilly but the lowest it got was 45 degrees. Can someone help me????

It could be shock from trans planting most of the time they recover pretty easily. Some potting soils can be to rich this has happend to me several times. Now I mix in a bit of a less rich mix. They seem to like this.
