Re-planting planted Impatiens

green_all_over(30328)June 10, 2004

I'm very new to this - have been reading the forum and still don't have exactly the answer I need. I've planted some Impatiens in my back yard and they are doing beautifully. They're multiplying like crazy, so my questions is.. how do I maintain them? Can I re-plant them and if so, do I just snip off stems and put them in water and wait for roots? I want to put them in other various places around my yard. My apologies for being so ignorant and thanks in advance for any tips -

Yes, you can take cuttings in water. You can have small flowering plants in about 8 weeks from cuttings. Well actually less because the cutting might flower before it even gets roots, but I'm not counting that.
