Collecting Seeds from Double Impatiens

millieon(zone 6a)August 29, 2006

Hi All. Do Double Impatiens set seeds and how can they be collected?

BTW I tried the pinch and poke method and was not successful the first try then tried again and no problem.

Next time have to start earlier.

From what I have gathered in my communication with the breeding companies.... No you cant. Funny thing is you can buy seeds of doubles but they dont seem to set seed. I was told they have no reproductive organs.
