RE: Fertilizing Impatiens

Are you planting them the same place each year? The lady from our local greenhouse told me to put a dose of lime a few weeks before planting them.. The repeated planting drains the soil.. I do this each year and it works wonders...


RE: Fertilizing Impatiens

You could add some compost to the soil and some manure. That should help the soil and there should be microbs in it as well.
