was wondering why my Impatiens haven't flowered yet. Is there a way to force them to flower? I have them in 4 inch pots and they are pretty bushy. I want to be able to sell these as I have about 100 of them. Please help thx

RE: no flowers yet

What fertilizer and how often do you fertilize? Usually if a plant puts out lots of leaves and no flowers it is because it has been fed too much nitrogen. Nitrogen is the first number on the fertilizer box. Stop fertilizing and they will probably flower.
