Impatiens not blooming??

I have had my beautiful impatiens all summer. They were growing fine, but became very leggy, so I read to cut them back. Now, they are growing very healthy, but not blooming. We have had SO MUCH RAIN this summer, so I am wanting to know if it is because of the rain?

To Kgd25, it sounds like people all over the U.S. are having problems with impatiens this year.

RE: Impatiens not blooming??

Impatiens usually flower very prolifically. The only time I've ever had any not flower was just after I took them as cuttings. If you've just cut back the plant it will be putting all its energy into growing again and won't flower for a while. Good luck. Be patient.
